The moment young people enter the juvenile justice system, they became defined by their past, not their potential. We partner directly with juvenile justice agencies across the country, providing the resources, training, and networks they need to make school relevant and meaningful, so students can build a successful life when they leave.
We partner with juvenile justice agencies and their education partners in a range of ways, both by supporting cohorts of agencies and their staff on sweeping, innovative projects and by working directly with individual agencies on specific projects.
Examples of Our Work
In the summer of 2020, we launched the Unjammed Learning Network, through which we are helping 10 agencies roll out Google Apps for Education and training and supporting hundreds of teachers on how to make teaching engaging and relevant, even if remote, using technology creativity.
In the spring of 2020, we partnered with the Colorado Division of Youth Services to build out a series of transition modules for them to use with students held in their post-adjudication facilities. The modules were all designed in Google Classrooms, and include interactive, relevant activities designed specifically for students leaving confinement in Colorado.
