The Michigan Juvenile Justice Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a group of young people who aim to transform the juvenile justice system in Michigan through working with local and state agencies and community members while leveraging the voices of those who are the most impacted. This group of young people is from Washtenaw County, ages 16-25, most of whom have had direct contact with the justice system and are passionate about informing and transforming juvenile justice in Michigan. The Youth Advisory Board will contribute to the statewide decision-making around juvenile justice reform efforts based on their own knowledge and opinion when needed. The position and opinion of the YAB is not reflective of that of the Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice (MCJJ). The Board engages in meaningful experiences that normalize youth as experts and co-creators of knowledge regarding juvenile justice efforts in Michigan.
