Requirements to Participate

If you're interested in MOSAICS TTA here are a few things to consider:

  • TTA is a time commitment. You will need the buy-in from all court staff and justice professionals to participate in TTA. Depending on the type of TTA you choose to receive, the commitment could be as little as a two-hour workshop or up to weekly workshops over the course of three months. We are able to create a TTA plan around your schedule.
  • TTA involves implementing change over time. Court teams should be committed to applying what they learn in TTA to their own practices and programs.
    • MOSAICS staff will help courts develop a strategic plan to manage changes and provide follow-up assistance
    • After TTA, court staff will hold any needed additional meetings with stakeholders, create new tools or policy guides, and other activities to put the changes into practice
