Youth Justice Project

Through its Youth Justice Project (YJP), SCSJ works to ensure equity, fairness, and justice for North Carolina youth in high-quality education, juvenile, and criminal systems. The YJP’s current focus is on dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline — a system of laws, policies, and practices that push students out of school and into the juvenile and criminal systems — through collaboration, community education, communication, and resource development.

For more information on the project, visit the YJP website here.

Full reports from the project can be found here.
