Youth Justice Leadership Institute

Primary tabs

The National Juvenile Justice Network (NJJN)  is now accepting applications to the 2017-18 Youth Justice Leadership Institute

The Institute is a year-long fellowship program focused on developing 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. The program is geared for individuals of color working as professionals in the juvenile justice field, who may also be young adults who are system survivors themselves, or family members of someone in the system.

Each year, 10 fellows from across the country are selected to develop their leadership and advocacy skills in the context of a robust curriculum around youth justice reform. The fellowship is completed concurrently with fellows' current employment, so fellows do not have to leave their jobs to participate in the Institute. The fellowship includes two fully financed retreats, mentoring and frequent distance learning opportunities. 

Interested in learning more about the Institute, or know someone who might be? NJJN will be hosting two informational webinars on March 23 and 28, 2017, led by the Institute's coordinator, Diana Onley-Campbell. To learn more, follow the link below, or e-mail
