CJJ is excited to be expanding our Emerging Leaders Committee (ELC) and is calling on all interested young people aged 16-24 to submit an application!

The ELC will make recommendations to the CJJ leadership and Executive Board, and support youth member recruitment, promote youth engagement across all organizational projects, programs and activities. Members will also pay a key role in shaping and broadening the scope/scale of CJJ's youth partnership work over the coming years. If selected, members will be expected to participate in monthly 1-hour long conference calls and to actively participate in CJJ ELC projects.

This is an excellent opportunity for dynamic young leaders who want get more involved with CJJ's work and network with the broader juvenile justice reform community!
