The purpose of the Tow Youth Justice Institute Advisory Council is to assist and help grow the youth justice work of the Institute by 1) identifying potential new strategic directions for study or action, 2) developing connections to national organizations and other public and private partners for potentially important collaborative projects, and 3) identifying new opportunities for core funding to support the ongoing work of the Institute.
Members meet three times over the course of each year. They will receive reports on the progress of the Juvenile Justice Policy and Oversight Committee work as supported by the TYJI; the status and findings of on-going research projects; progress on efforts to reach out to new funding sources; and any other important TYJI initiative. The Advisory Council members will provide relevant input and information from their area of work that relate to youth justice in the state and nationally; they will propose new ideas for research and ways to improve the youth justice system. Additionally, TYJI Advisory Council members will identify new opportunities for partnerships and funding.
