Posted in Announcements

The following message is sent by the Center for Youth Justice Transformation, in partnership with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).

In 2024, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Act turns 50 years old. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is celebrating the work done to improve the youth justice system and come together around the work left to do at the 2024 OJJDP National Conference in Washington, D.C. on November 19-21, 2024. The voices of those directly impacted have and continue to be core to advancing youth justice transformation for young people, their families, and communities. With that in mind, OJJDP invites directly impacted individuals to join the conference as essential partners. CYJT is working with OJJDP to gather interest from directly impacted folks to attend the conference (alongside other justice professionals) and lend their voice as presenters or facilitators.

Directly impacted folks can share their interest HERE (new window).

All interest forms will be considered by OJJDP conference planning staff, and individuals will be contacted directly about specific opportunities in July 2024. Registration information will be shared with all interested folks in August 2024.

If you have questions, please contact the Center for Youth Justice Transformation at cyjt@air.org (new window). Thank you for your help is lifting up lived expertise and growing pathways for the next generation of youth justice transformation leaders.

Be well,

Center for Youth Justice Transformation, in partnership with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
