The Role of the Juvenile Prosecutor

In the near future, contact us to get on the training list

The National Advocacy Center – Columbia, SC

The juvenile justice system has the untapped potential to serve as a wide-reaching, early interception point for at-risk youth. Given the tremendous role that juvenile prosecutors play, it is important that their decisions are supported by the most current science and research.  The newly-created 2.5-day training curriculum will lead to consistent practices that will help improve outcomes for youth, families, and communities. Join NDAA at the National Advocacy Center in Columbia, South Carolina, for guidance and discussion on the following topics:

  • Current research and legal developments in adolescent brain development;
  • The impact of trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences on adolescents;
  • The juvenile sex offender;
  • Substance abuse strategies for juveniles; and
  • Ethical considerations for juvenile prosecutors.

Juvenile prosecutors from any jurisdiction are welcome. A limited number of spots are available.

The training will start at 9:00 a.m. on July 31, 2019, and conclude at 1:00 p.m. on August 2. 2019.
