"Stories are the shortest distance between us and truth."


Why you should share your story & What We will do with it.

Part of our mission is to collect and share stories of those personally involved with juvenile justice systems across the country.  Sharing stories brings people together, raises awareness about important issues, and gives you a voice in the public discourse about juvenile justice. If you have a story you would like to share, we hope that you will share it with us.  

Once we receive your submission, we will share it on this website, or we will get in touch with you if we have any questions.  Please note that in some cases we may post shorter/edited versions of longer stories, but we will contact you prior to publishing those online. We will also share some stories via our e-newsletter and our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Our goal is to share as many stories as possible, so your voices can be counted & heard.


How to share your story.

There are two ways that you can share your story, either send us an email or call the Juvenile Project Voicemail Line. Please make sure to tell us your name, age, and where you live (neighborhood/city, state).  If you send an email, feel free to include a picture of yourself, so we can post it with your story. If you have any questions, please contact us.
