A paid opportunity for juvenile justice leaders

The Juvenile Advisory Council (JAC) is a paid opportunity for young leaders with prior juvenile justice system involvement.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible if you are between 18 and 27 years old and were previously involved in the juvenile justice system. You are not eligible if you are currently on probation or have any pending juvenile or criminal cases. 

What do JAC members do?

JAC members provide support to youth and their families, including regular orientations to the juvenile justice system. JAC members share their expertise with the Juvenile Probation Department to inform policy development.

What's in it for me?

JAC members receive extensive training, mentorship, and are paid a competitive hourly wage.
