Youth Justice Young Advocates Project

The Young Advocates project will enable young people with youth justice experience to have a stronger voice on the system – by supporting them to engage with their peers to shape decision-making for the better.

We are looking for young people aged 14-20 year olds, who are currently residents of England and Wales, and who have personal experience of the youth justice system, to take part.

More information about the project, what Young Advocates will do, what you would gain from taking part, and guidance on how to apply is available here. You can also find out more by watching our project presentation to our members here.

To apply to be a Young Advocate, you can download the application form here, or fill it in online here.

The deadline for applications is 31st August. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch: rose@leaders-unlocked.org

The Young Advocates Project is a collaboration between Leaders Unlocked and the Standing Committee for Youth Justice (SCYJ), supported by Children in Need. We will have help from the Young Adult Advisors on Criminal Justice who also have experiences of the justice system and took part in a similar project.
