Who Should Attend?
This workshop is designed for juvenile drug court teams. Because the workshop is highly interactive and focuses on group decision-making and consensus, the training experience will be enhanced by the attendance of as many team members as possible. NDCI requires, at a minimum, the following attend due to their day-to-day interactions with juvenile drug court clients:

  • Judge
  • Prosecutor
  • Coordinator
  • Treatment provider
  • Defense attorney
  • Law enforcement officer
  • Probation officer

Without these core team members it is unlikely that your team will be accepted.

Jurisdictions must provide a training space at no cost to NDCI.
