Youth Justice Collaborative
The Youth Justice Collaborative performs research that addresses the perspectives and challenges that youth face as victims, witnesses, and developing persons.
The Youth Justice Collaborative encompasses a diverse working group of faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate and undergraduate students at Arizona State University who are committed to understanding and promoting the well-being of youth and their families. Our research is justice-focused, in that we address the perspectives and challenges that youth face as victims, witnesses, and developing persons. We are committed to finding community-based solutions for complex problems from reducing child welfare involvement to promoting positive youth development for justice-involved youth. In doing so, we integrate both theory and application, deeply embedding ourselves in the communities we study and serve.
