You are invited
to this lively and informative conversation to hear the experiences of young adults and their families formerly involved with the juvenile justice system. This discussion will allow us to collect recommendations on how systems can more frequently and effectively include youth voice in juvenile justice policy change.
Youth Facilitators participating in the Youth Empowerment Academy, a 4-month academy that coaches youth and young adults to be leaders and use their voice to affect change. The Youth Facilitators will lead this discussion then share the recommendations with the NYS Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG).
This initiative is funded by the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS)
