Youth Justice Leadership Institute: Building a Movement

Our mission is to expand the foundation for a more effective juvenile justice reform movement by supporting the development of a strong base of well-prepared and well-equipped advocates and organizers who reflect the communities most affected by juvenile justice system practices and policies, with a particular focus on cultivating and supporting leaders of color, youth and family members.
