Reclaiming Futures

Special March 20 Web Conference
for All Reclaiming Futures Applicants

Reclaiming Futures® changed the way juvenile courts in 10 pilot sites help teens with drug and alcohol problems. A new national dissemination program supported by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is spreading the Reclaiming Futures approach to up to six new communities this year through a learning collaborative that shares resources, improves data collection and utilization and promotes new standards of practice. No grant funds will be awarded, but successful applicants will receive a technical assistance package valued at $180,000.

Want to become a Reclaiming Futures site in 2008? Join us for a live one-hour web conference at 1:30pm EDT, on Thursday, March 20.

This session offers an excellent opportunity to talk to the staff of the Reclaiming Futures National Program Office about the current call for proposals and learn more about the selection process.
