Youth Justice Program works to nurture young people’s visions for change. Through the Youth Justice Program youth members plan and carry out their own campaigns: The Trauma Care Campaign and the Restorative Justice Reinvestment Campaign.

The Trauma Care Campaign advocates for the development of a trauma center on the
South Side.

The Restorative Justice Reinvestment Campaign is a campaign to develop the leadership of youth impacted by juvenile detention to close the Juvenile Detention Center and replace it with alternative programs in neighborhoods where youth get locked up.
