Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (or CURYJ pronounced "courage") is an organization that promotes restorative justice programs, offers nonviolence trainings, and provides legal services in defense of civil and human rights.
By creating a place for youth and their families to come together, heal from past experiences, dream and achieve their visions for the future through non-violence and restorative justice training, leadership development, community organizing, legal and policy advocacy, social action research, education, cultural awareness, and health and wellness, our mission is to interrupt the cycles of violence and poverty by motivating and empowering young people that have been impacted directly and indirectly by the criminal justice system to make positive changes in their lives and prepare them to become the community leaders of today. We believes that youth and young adults are the experts on the issues effecting their lives and need to be involved in developing the policies that impact them and is dedicated to providing training and technical assistance to elevate youth voice and power.
