The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a 2013 Youth Summit, Empowering Young Leaders for Juvenile Justice Reform, on August 2 and August 3, 2013 in Washington, DC.  The Summit will bring together young people from around the country and is open to all young people interested in juvenile justice reform. (The Summit content and training sessions will be appropriate for individuals ages 16-30.)

The Summit seeks to cultivate and empower a young body of juvenile justice advocates. Participants will learn the basics of juvenile justice, and will have the opportunity to delve into more detail about two hot topics in juvenile justice reform: Disproportionate Minority Contact and the School-to-Prison-Pipeline. The Summit will also engage participants in skill-building sessions on leadership development and civic engagement. For more information on the sessions that will be offered at the Summit, click here.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. We hope you can join us next year!
