The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is accepting applications for youth advisors to participate in the Police and Youth Engagement Project to be held in late April 2016 in Washington, DC. OJJDP is seeking a diverse group of youth who are committed to improving the relationship between youth and law enforcement. Applicants must be between 16 and 24 years old.
OJJDP is funding this effort in partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the Coalition for Juvenile Justice. Youth and young adults are invited to share their thoughts and experiences with law enforcement leaders during this 2-day training and roundtable discussion. Insights will inform a national law enforcement training institute and law enforcement resources.
The application deadline is March 4, 2016.
Email questions to Naomi Smoot at the Coalition for Juvenile Justice or by phone at (202) 467-0864 ext. 109.
