Department of Community Justice

Community Justice is the partner Juvenile Justice Capstone students will be working with. Their mission is to enhance community safety and reduce criminal activity by holding youth and adults accountable in a fair and just manner, assisting them to develop skills necessary for success, and effectively using public resources. Students community-based learning is the most important aspect of this class. Students will develop, prepare and present a workshop or creative activity in the PODS, or housing units, in juvenile detention. The curriculum for each workshop will be written by each small group and become the property of the Department.
