The National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition (NJJDPC)
The National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition (NJJDPC) is a collaborative array of youth- and family- serving, social justice, law enforcement, corrections, and faith-based organizations, working to ensure healthy families, build strong communities and improve public safety by promoting fair and effective policies, practices and programs for youth involved or at risk of becoming involved in the juvenile and criminal justice systems. We work collaboratively on various reform efforts to improve the administration of juvenile justice.
The NJJDPC achieves its mission by engaging a broad spectrum of opinion leaders and stakeholders, including the voices of those most affected by the juvenile justice system, to:
- Advocate for sensible and safe solutions to crime and delinquency;
- Build and leverage policy leadership in the field; and
- Serve as a clearinghouse for research and best practices within our nation’s juvenile and criminal justice systems.
