9th Annual DMC Resource Center conference will bring together juvenile
court officers, social workers, educators, police officers, case
managers, judges, attorneys and community members to discuss common
solutions and successes that will impact the disproportionate minority
contact with child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Conference
participants increase their knowledge about working with youth and
their families, diversity and cultural competence, policy and best
practices. Those working with youth in and around the juvenile court
system acquire knowledge and will be presented with compelling emotionally
charged presentations that underscore the importance of finding
alternatives to confinement, out-of-home placement and other negative
approaches. Proceedings and conference evaluations for previous
conferences are posted below.
