Capacitating Juvenile Justice Workers
Frontline Juvenile Justice Workers provide vital service to their communities, assist young people in building life skills, develop healthy relationships, and make the right decisions by guiding, mentoring, and counseling the young generation.
Therefore, training for empowerment and enlightenment are very much required for excellent service hence we at the Tanganyika Law Society(TLS) in collaboration with the Institute of Judicial Administration (IJA), Lushoto under the support of USAID through PACT under a project named: Faith & Community Initiative that engages the Criminal Justice organized a capacity building training to Juvenile Justice workers from the 3rd August to 30th of September 2020.
The overall objective of the training was to provide participants with knowledge and skills to implement the law of the Child Act of 2009 and the law of the child (Juvenile Court Procedure) Rules of 2017, to handle children’s cases in the juvenile court accordingly. Proceedings of these training can be accessed through Wakili TV.
