About YSRP: The Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project (YSRP) seeks to end the practice of prosecuting youth in the adult criminal justice system. In the meantime, YSRP seeks to lessen the duration and impact of adult criminal sentences on children and their families, who are primarily low-income and Black and Brown. Through individual cases and policy advocacy, we work to transform the experiences of children prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system, and to ensure that children who have contact with that system can return home and live full lives with dignity. We partner with court-involved youth, their families, and lawyers to develop holistic, humanizing narratives that mitigate the facts of each case in an effort to avoid adult incarceration and provide decision-makers with actionable alternatives. We make crucial connections to community resources, providing our youth and Juvenile Lifer client-partners with connections to supportive services in the areas of education, healthcare, housing, and employment. Finally, we work to raise awareness of the issues that young people face in the adult criminal justice system. For more information about YSRP’s mission, values and work, please visit our website.
