National Center for Juvenile Justice
The National Center for Juvenile Justice is the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) in Reno, NV. NCJFCJ is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3). Since its inception in 1973, the Center has been a resource for independent and original research on topics related directly and indirectly to the field of juvenile justice. Although the Center is the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, it has its own Charter which governs all research activities and is responsible for generating its own operating funds. With substantial support from public and private sources over the years, the Center has developed resources and capacities which render it unique in the world of juvenile justice research.


National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges 
The mission of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges is to provide all judges, courts, and related agencies involved with juvenile, family, and domestic violence cases with the knowledge and skills to improve the lives of the families and children who seek justice.


Center for Juvenile Justice Reform 
The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute is designed to support leaders in the juvenile justice and related systems of care. The Center seeks to complement the good work being done across the country in juvenile justice reform by providing a multi-systems perspective and set of resources in support of this work.

Making a difference requires both the juvenile justice system, and community and parent involvement.

 

All teens deserve our help. This is not just a problem for their families; it’s a problem AND opportunity for us all.
