Emerging Leaders Committee Support

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice’s Emerging Leaders Committee is a partnership between Coalition for Juvenile Justice and emerging leaders in the field of juvenile justice, many of whom bring lived expertise to their work. This committee helps shape CJJ’s work, while further developing the leadership, advocacy skills, and professional interests of the emerging leaders.

The Emerging Leaders Committee (ELC) is a key part of CJJ. Members serve on the committee and ensure youth perspectives are integrated into every aspect of CJJ’s work, from promoting youth engagement to shaping recommendations to federal and state policymakers. ELC members are between the ages of 16 and 24. Some have personal experience with the juvenile justice system while some joined because they are inspired by the stories of fellow youth and simply want to help. All are passionate advocates dedicated to seeing the juvenile justice system become truly just for all individuals who come into contact with it.
