IJJO Day by Day

The online course of the European project ‘JODA’ (Juvenile Offenders Detention Alternatives) has been carried out on the IJJO online training platform, the International School for Juvenile Justice. It started on October 7, 2015, and was completed by the end of December 2015. This course supports the aim of the JODA project, which is to deliver knowledge and share best practices among different European countries on alternatives to deprivation of liberty for young offenders.

The course, developed by Prof Ursula Kilkelly and Ms Louise Forde, was composed of 4 modules, each lasting 10 hours: Introducing Youth Justice; Introduction to Alternatives to Detention; Putting Alternatives to Detention into Practice; Implementing Alternatives to Detention; and Advocacy. It lasted 3 months and was free of charge for those selected.

The ‘JODA’ project is led by the Istituto Don Calabria, Italy. The other European partners of the project, aside from the IJJO, are: Kesa- Crime Prevention Foundation (Estonia), Include Youth (Northern Ireland), Defence for Children (Netherlands) and Fundación Diagrama (Spain).

The project will host its final conference in Brussels on January 27 2016.
