Be a part of our work to create a fair and effective justice system for Michigan's children, youth, and young adults.
MCYJ at a Glance
The Michigan Center for Youth Justice (MCYJ) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing policies and practices that reduce confinement and support trauma-informed, racially equitable, socio-economically and culturally responsive, community-based solutions for Michigan’s justice-involved children, youth and young adults.
Every year, justice-involved young people in Michigan and their families are thrown into significant debt due to excessive court fines and fees levied upon them as they move through the juvenile justice system.
Please consider making a contribution to support our work on our Debt-Free Justice campaign.
