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. 

 

Implementation Grants

     A limited number of implementation grants are available to help students implement their projects. Teams may request a maximum of $50. The grant application can be found HERE.

 

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 programs, homeschoolers and youth organizations.
