The American Bar Association brings expertise, a reputation for excellence, and a long-term commitment to the goals of Youth for Justice through its Education in Law and Juvenile Justice project. The ABA has administered this continually since 1978 for OJJDP.
Youth For Justice is the cooperative OJJDP national effort to address issues of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention through high-quality law-related education (LRE) programs. By working closely with legal, educational, governmental, and community groups, the ABA Division for Public Education conducts innovative programs and develops exemplary resources that engage young people while preventing delinquency and augmenting literacy and academic achievement.

Through curriculum development and professional development activities, including conferences, publications, and technical assistance services to state and local organizations, the ABA Division for Public Education supports the goals of YFJ, to help young people avoid delinquent behavior and develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of effective citizens.NCA/NCF
