2010 Juvenile Justice Leadership Development Institute
This is the pilot year for the Juvenile Justice Leadership Development Institute this July. The Institute's mission is to create the foundation for a more effective juvenile justice reform movement by developing a strong base of well prepared and well trained advocates and organizers who reflect the communities most affected by juvenile justice system practices and policies, with a particular focus on cultivating and supporting leaders of color, youth and family members. Applications will be accepted from people of color, youth with direct system experience, and family members with direct system experience. The Institute will take place in New Orleans, July 11-16, and will involve a year-long mentorship and distance learning components. NJJN will provide transportation to and from New Orleans.
