Youth for Justice

What is Youth for Justice?

      Youth for Justice is a student-led program designed to empower youth to be actively engaged citizens who work together to make a positive difference in their community.  

 The program allows students to identify an injustice, intolerance or problem relevant to their local community, and then develop a plan of action and work together to remedy the injustice. 


Youth for Justice gives students the power to make a difference in their communities through service-based learning. As students work on their projects, they develop valuable 21st century skills. Youth for Justice is aligned to Ohio's New Learning Standards in Social Studies and English.Language Arts.
