Center for Court Innovation's Youth Justice Board

The Center for Court Innovation's Youth Justice Board is now accepting applications from young people ages 14-18 who want to make a difference in the lives of New York City teens. The 10-month program allows young people to learn firsthand how important decisions are made at the city level, providing them with tools and resources to influence local policy and practice. Participants also enhance their writing, research, teamwork, and public speaking skills as they perform meaningful work with real-life impact. The 2014-15 Youth Justice Board will look at how to reduce the number of young people in the justice system by examining options police officers have at the moment of arrest. Members receive a stipend for their participation in the program. The priority application deadline is June 20, 2014, and the final deadline is July 11, 2014.
