Youth Represent is dedicated to improving the lives and futures of young people affected by the criminal justice system.

Presence in: United States
Focus: Criminal Justice

Youth Represent is dedicated to improving the lives and futures of young people affected by the criminal justice system. A conviction, an arrest, or even a simple interaction with police can have lasting consequences for young people, threatening the stability they need to thrive. When our justice system creates barriers to success for youth, we use the law to help them leave the stigma of a criminal record behind.
