Mission Statement

The mission of Youth Justice Institute is to better the lives of the youth we serve and facilitate positive change within the systems that affect them.

We believe every youth has the right to dignity, humanity and justice. By and through direct services, research, documentation, and sharing of best and promising practices, we will reform and advance the field of juvenile justice to make it responsive to the needs of youth and families. As a result of our work, system-involved youth will transition into healthy adults.


YJI works with youth who have involvement with the juvenile justice system and/or dependency system to support them and nurture their strengths, allowing them to move out of the system. We believe that through direct services--mentoring, mental health, and advocacy--we are able to learn more about this population and ultimately affect policy change.
