National Training Curriculum for Educators of Youth in Confinement, U.S. Department of Justice
The National Training Curriculum for Educators of Youth in Confinement is the product of collaboration between the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the National Juvenile Detention Association. The curriculum is a 40-hour core training curriculum created for new educators in juvenile detention facilities. However, the curriculum was created and tested by experienced educators in detention and correctional education. The information is delivered through a sequence of modules which provide the foundation of confinement education, role play exercise, and journal writing focused on individual application. The training helps educators develop assessments and curriculums that are in line with the existing national standards.
