Congratulations to a new class of UNITY youth leaders! Twelve young people have been named to UNITY’s OJJDP Peer Guide program, which builds on the successes of the past Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) National Intertribal Youth Leadership efforts and the Today’s Native Leaders program. The three-year initiative will support and enhance Native youth engagement, coordination, and action related to community support systems, cultural approaches to restorative justice, with a focus on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention in Indian country. UNITY looks forward to working with this diverse group of youth leaders and mentors, who will design and facilitate intensive trainings aimed to reach at risk Native youth throughout the country.
