Meet the second cohort of California Justice Leaders.

California Justice Leaders—AmeriCorps members are justice-involved and system-impacted young adult leaders serving at partner organizations across the state in Los Angeles, San Joaquin, Fresno, Sacramento, and Alameda counties.

Members receive training and professional development and serve as re-entry navigators for young people who are currently in or have recently been released from California’s Division of Juvenile Justice facilities. They work to build awareness and increase the utilization of California’s Honorable Discharge petition, which can help remove barriers related to juvenile records.
