Implementation Sites Project

March 25, 2015


The purpose of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges' (NCJFCJ) Implementation Sites Project is to build on the success of the Mentor Model Courts. By engaging selected jurisdictions in cutting-edge program, policy, and initiative development, the NCJFCJ's Mentor Model Courts fulfill the goal of improving the outcomes for children in care. 

The Implementation Sites Project seeks to accomplish this goal through guiding and assisting Lead Judges and collaborative team members in assessing current practices, implementing best practices outlined in the Enhanced Resource Guidelines, gathering data, measuring performance, and participating in ongoing training opportunities. This publication serves as an overview of the project highlighting the eight Implementation Sites and the NCJFCJ's commitment with these Sites to determine best practices and prioritize court improvement goals.
