The Applied Leadership Network (ALN), the Casey Foundation’s juvenile justice leadership program, is seeking teams of juvenile justice system leaders, community leaders and others to participate in a 14-month leadership development opportunity. This opportunity is focused on advancing the skills of community and juvenile justice practitioners to build partnerships and together lead justice reforms and system transformation.
A Focus on Diversion and Prevention
For this ALN class, there is specific interest in teams that seek to establish a continuum of prevention and diversion processes to hold youth accountable for their behavior without resorting to legal sanctions, court oversight or the threat of confinement. Instead, communities would address predictable adolescent misbehavior outside of the court system with community-centered approaches and assets. Responses would include surrounding youth most at risk for justice system involvement, specifically Black and Latino young men, with the positive connections and opportunities that have the highest likelihood of maximizing young people’s success.
The application process for the 2023–24 Juvenile Justice Applied Leadership Network (Class 5) opens on June 1, 2023. View the following pages to learn more about this opportunity.
