About the Project

The Juvenile Drug Treatment Court (JDTC) Learning Collaborative is a multi-year project for JDTCs that want to assess needs, build capacity, initiate strategic planning, implement appropriate program improvements, evaluate program performance and help sustain programs. Sites serve as “models for system change.” As part of their involvement in the project, JDTC Learning Collaborative sites will be expected to implement meaningful change, evaluate progress and share both challenges and successes with other courts across the nation.

Learning Collaborative Corner

The NCJFCJ introduced the JDTC Learning Collaborative to the newsletter this year. The LC Corner features first-hand accounts from LC sites that have joined the multi-year project since it began in 2014. In the LC Corner, site teams described the specific strategies they used to make changes and improve practice. They offer detailed examples of policies and tools (e.g. phase checklists). In the LC Corner, site also share how they have disseminated their new knowledge and capacity to JDTC teams in their states/regions. The LC Corner featured a variety of topics this year.
