Knox County Juvenile Court has been selected as one of six courts in the nation to participate in the Learning Collaborative project through the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.

Judge Tim Irwin and his team will work closely with nationally-recognized experts to assess community needs, build support and make meaningful improvements to their programs.

The court will have access to more funding to implement evidence-based treatment models for teens. The program will focus on adolescent development, family dynamics and school-based support.
