All children and youth deserve a fair chance

At the Center for Children & Youth Justice (CCYJ), we’re changing the way young people experience the child welfare and juvenile justice systems—for the better. By listening to young people and working with partners across Washington State, we’re helping to redesign our child welfare and juvenile justice systems to meet children and youth’s unique needs. Every year we help improve the lives of 50,000 young people.

Hear LGBTQ Youth Voices

We’re piloting a Protocol for Safe & Affirming Care to ensure LGBTQ youth in juvenile justice and child welfare systems are treated fairly. It’s based on LGBTQ youth voices.
