The NJJA conference provides an opportunity for anyone working with at-risk youth to learn from, and network with, professionals across prevention, education, juvenile justice, and treatment systems. We have a great lineup of keynote speakers, breakout sessions and social events.

The conference also provides professional development credits for LMHPs (CEUs), Probation Administration workers (criminogenic hours), and legal professionals (CLEs).

Youth Day will be held Thursday, May 7 at this year’s annual NJJA conference. Come and learn together with juvenile justice professionals, judges, youth advocates, and current or former system-involved youth. Attendees will participate in workshops, visit with community resources and hear from keynote speaker Starcia Ague, former juvenile justice youth and national advocate. Youth participants and their support people will receive free admission.
