The Summit aims to cultivate and empower the next generation of leaders by providing them with the tools they need to leverage their lived expertise. Participants will learn the basics of juvenile justice and have the opportunity to delve into more detail about key topics in the field of juvenile justice. This event is intended for emerging leaders in the field and is best suited for audiences ages 16-27. The Summit is hosted by CJJ's Emerging Leaders Committee. 

The theme of this year's summit is "Empowering, Enriching, and Inspiring Youth: Making Policy Personal."
