|About CCI - Youth Justice Board|
The Youth Justice Board is an after-school program that gives young people a voice in policies that affect their lives. Each year, a team of youth from across New York City investigates a current juvenile justice or public safety issue, formulates policy recommendations and works to implement its recommendations. The program has two primary goals: first, to help members develop leadership, knowledge and civic engagement skills that will benefit their communities, their families and their futures; and second, to contribute young people’s perspectives to public policy discussions. The project aims to foster ongoing dialogue between policymakers and informed youth leaders.
