Upcoming OJJDP Trainings

New Grantee Orientation Training
OJJDP's Demonstration Programs Division is holding a New Grant Recipient Orientation Training for all new grantees January 26–28 in Washington, DC. The training will familiarize grant recipients with OJJDP and provide attendees the information and resources they need to manage their grants more effectively. The 2½-day session will offer participants direct access to OJJDP grant managers who will be available to answer questions and work with attendees throughout the training sessions. Agenda items include performance measurement, reporting requirements, program development, financial monitoring, working with grant managers, networking, and funding/training opportunities.

Comprehensive Gang Model Training
OJJDP is offering a 3-day intensive training in March 2009 for communities interested in implementing the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model. The training will require communities with significant youth gang issues to bring multidisciplinary teams together to learn how to implement the various strategies of this research-based and proven effective model. National experts from around the country will provide participants with intensive training and technical assistance to deal with their unique gang issues. Attendance at the workshop is by invitation only and limited to 100 participants. Dates and location of the workshop will be set and announced at a later date. Interested communities should request youth gang technical assistance through OJJDP's National Youth Gang Center Web site.
