More than half. Thatís how many youth in DCís juvenile justice system have special education needs. But court-involved youth with disabilities rarely receive the education to which they are legally entitled. Instead, without proper support, far too many drop out and land in the criminal justice system. Dedicated to changing this trajectory, School Justice Project champions the rights of these young people (ages 18-22 Ė those at the deep end of the juvenile justice system), equipping them with education and resources to transition successfully into adulthood. SJP attorneys provide 150 youth with direct legal representation, utilizing special education law to increase access to education. Systemic advocacy efforts improve re-entry services and policies, making sure these students have meaningful, effective support when they return to the community. SJP also connects its clients to community-based support services, and offers trainings for legal professionals to encourage the integration of special education law into juvenile practice. These kids have been dealt a tough hand in life. You can give them a fighting chance at the meaningful future they deserve.
