PbS Coordinators Training for Ongoing Improvement

Performance-based Standards (PbS) will host its annual State/Agency Coordinators Training from Oct. 25-27, 2017 in Chicago. PbS participants include youth correction, detention/assessment and community residential programs from 36 states and 15 agencies across the nation. Representatives and leaders from these participating juvenile agencies will convene to collaborate and learn alongside one another with the goal of returning to their local jurisdictions with new and valuable information.

This year’s training will focus on resources far beyond the data. Over the course of the event, PbS will provide various training sessions, regionally-based work group sessions and panel discussions featuring PbS coaches and coordinators. The training will conclude with a guest speaker presentation on trauma by Dr. Christopher Branson, a clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor in the NYU School of Medicine. His work focuses on improving access to effective social services for youth and families involved with the juvenile justice system.

The training is held in conjunction with the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrator’s (CJCA) annual Leadership Institute. State directors and PbS coordinators will convene for the CJCA and PbS Awards Night on Oct. 26, 2017. The ceremony will feature finalists and recipients of the 2017 PbS Barbara Allen-Hagen Award, Kids Got Talent Contest, Scholarship Fund, Reentry Award and Employment Matching Award.

Stay tuned for updates, pictures and videos after the ceremony, as well as our official announcement of this year’s Barbara Allen-Hagen Award winners!
