Recently, a team from the Juvenile Justice Services Division (JJSD) of the Arizona Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) recently received their Fellow Certificates from Georgetown University.
The Georgetown team from the JJSD is a multi-disciplinary team that participated in the 2012 Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Public Sector Leaders, through the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University’s Public Policy Institute.
The Certificate Program was a week-long period of intensive study designed for organizations and system leaders working with youth known to both the juvenile justice and child welfare systems.
Upon completion of the week-long program, the team applied the knowledge they gained via a Capstone Project – a reform agenda on which they are working on with Maricopa County to implement as a pilot, with the goal of moving the effort statewide.

The Juvenile Justice Services Division of the Arizona Supreme Court, Administrative Office of the Courts, is responsible for the effective administration of juvenile justice programs for delinquent and incorrigible youth in coordination with the juvenile courts. Programs include delinquency prevention, treatment, probation, statewide automation and other related activities.
