On May 14–16, 2014, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) will host our inaugural Conference on Children, Youth, and Families in San Diego, California.

On May 14–16, 2014, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) will host our inaugural Conference on Children, Youth, and Families in San Diego, California.

Our goal is to highlight the important work being done by NCCD staff and partners on issues that involve children and families, including juvenile justice, child welfare, children exposed to violence, education, LGBT youth, and other areas. The conference theme is “Making Connections,” and many sessions will focus on children and families who are involved in multiple systems (e.g., education and juvenile justice) and how to make those systems work better together.

The Conference on Children, Youth, and Families is an evolution of the biennial Structured Decision Making® (SDM) Conference hosted by NCCD’s Children’s Research Center. This new conference will expand our scope beyond SDM® systems and child welfare to include all of the work we do that affects children.

The conference’s co-hosts include the Academy for Professional Excellence at the San Diego State University School of Social Work, the Children’s Initiative, the San Diego Commission on Gang Prevention and Intervention, and San Diego County Child Welfare. This planning group will work with NCCD staff to select the conference sessions and speakers. If you are interested in presenting at the conference, please submit your session ideas through the session RFP by April 30, 2013.

If you have any questions, please contact Angela Noel or Shannon Flasch.
