The National Center for Youth in Custody (NC4YC) invites you to
participate in our next installment in a series of webinars focusing on
Conditions of Confinement. Few argue the importance of education in a youth’s life, but many fail
to recognize the importance of a robust, engaging and quality education
program in a confinement setting as playing a critical role in
reconnecting educationally disenfranchised students to successful
educational experiences. How
that happens and what constitutes a quality confinement education
program is the subject of this webinar. Panelists environments for youth? will address topics
such as curriculum, teaching and learning, assessment, educational
program design and structure, student re-entry and transition
strategies. In addition, panelists will provide insight on how quality
education programs contribute to safe and healthy conditions of
confinement and positive facility culture.
