The Vera Institute of Justice combines expertise in research, demonstration projects, and technical assistance to help leaders in government and civil society improve the systems people rely on for justice and safety. The mission of Vera’s Center on Youth Justice (CYJ) is to promote the well-being and safety of youth, families, and communities by working with government to make juvenile justice systems equitable and humane in policy and practice.

Vera and CYJ have worked with state and local juvenile justice policymakers and practitioners as well as school districts, court systems, child welfare agencies, and other youth-serving institutions across the country.
