Casey Foundation seeks emerging youth justice leaders from around the country to join its 2019–21 Juvenile Justice Youth Advisory Council. Candidates have until Friday, Nov. 16, to apply. A webinar will be held on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 1 p.m. ET.
Ideal candidates are young adults, ages 18 to 25, who are interested in strengthening their leadership and advocacy skills as emerging leaders in juvenile justice reform. In addition, they will have current or past experience with the juvenile justice system themselves — such as probation, detention, residential placement, incarceration or aftercare — and be eager to work in partnership with Casey’s Juvenile Justice Strategy Group(JJSG) and with state and local juvenile justice systems.
