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.
Why use the Youth for Justice Program?
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.
Who can be a Youth for Justice?
The versatile nature of the program allows it to be incorporated into the classroom or used with afterschool groups, homeschoolers, and youth organizations.
