A Change for Our Future
For their 2015-2016 project, Juveniles for Justice youth advocates focused on access to higher education for justice-involved youth. The advocates developed a set of recommendations for juvenile justice facilities to help youth prepare for and attend college. Youth advocates also developed a workshop to help juvenile facility staff better support and encourage youth to plan for college. Their workshop explains their recommendations for facilities and includes role-playing exercises to demonstrate how the recommendations can be applied.
