A National Network

OJJDP Police/Youth Engagement Project

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) is looking for young people who are interested in applying to participate in an institute that will focus on police and youth engagement. This event will bring together youth from across the country to share their thoughts and experiences with law enforcement leaders. 


Participants will take part in a two-day long training and conversation in Charlotte, 




North Carolina on July 18-20, 2017. (Please note, this date has changed.)


Due to the new date, the application deadline has been extended to April 7! To apply, please complete the online survey (available here). A Word version is available here. For more information about qualifications and event details click here.


This effort is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). In Fiscal Year 2015, OJJDP competitively selected the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), in partnership with CJJ to manage this effort.




Please share this information with your networks and any young people who you think would be interested in this opportunity. 



If you have questions, please contact Naomi Smoot, CJJ's Executive Director, at or (202) 467-0864 ext. 113.
