Youth Transforming Justice

Youth Transforming Justice (YTJ) goals are to keep students in school and out of the Juvenile Justice system. We accomplish this by deploying several strategies. 1) The Marin County Youth Court uses restorative trauma-informed protocols to divert juvenile prosecution. The successful complication of the program removes the citation’s record. 2) We support schools in lowering suspension rates by training staff and students in the practice of restorative trauma-informed Alternatives to Suspension. 3) We provide Drug & Alcohol Safety Skills Harm Reduction Training for youth and parents 4) We help schools develop restorative trauma-informed school cultures. 4) We provide training and consultation on how to replicate YTJ programs for organizations throughout the United States.
