Ways to get involved


When you make a financial contribution to The Juvenile Project, your donations go directly towards helping us document and share stories about juvenile justice. In addition to maintaining this website, we are currently working on a short film and a feature documentary. Thanks to our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas, your donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Host a Screening

Films that share personal stories often help audiences think about the issues in a different way.  By hosting a community screening, you can engage stakeholders to get the conversation started on juvenile justice practices and reforms in your community.  

Our films are available on this website for individuals to watch at no charge, and we provide groups with a free community screening license to share these films with larger audiences.

We ask that you sign our agreement prior to scheduling a community screening, so that film participants may be notified and given an opportunity to attend the event. Please note: Our licensing agreement requires that all community screenings are free and open to the public. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a community screening.


Read and listen to new stories from our community.  Stay up-to-date on community screenings and feature film progress.  Learn more about juvenile justice practices and reforms that are happening across the country.  When you click through, please indicate your interest in "The Juvenile Project" on the sign-up form.

Share your Story

If you have been personally involved with the juvenile justice system, your perspective is vital to the reform movement. Please consider sharing your story with us. With your permission, we will post it here to give voice to your experience.
