The Imagine Justice AmeriCorps team is a career pathway for individuals who share the identities and experiences of court-connected youth to serve as community leaders in youth development and juvenile justice system transformation. These emerging community leaders provide critical support to youth in Pierce County through service at partner organizations.
The Youth-Serving Agencies Network (YSAN) formed in 2018 as systems change initiative for juvenile justice. It builds coordination and collaboration across organizations to maximize our shared impact on court-connected youth and the larger community. We do this by cultivating a peer learning community, strengthening relationships, and leveraging resources.
IJP is a leading partner in the Peace Point initiative. Peace Point is developing a strategic plan for the Pierce County community to reduce youth violence. This strategic plan is driven by community-based research on the root causes of youth violence as well as the lived experience of youth and community members who are most impacted by violence. Peace Point aims to shift the way our community understands, responds to, and funds youth violence work.
