Every year, the American juvenile justice system incarcerates over 70,000 young people. In Chicago, Urban Life Skills is an effective community-based alternative-to-detention program that aims to reduce recidivism and gang involvement among youth.

During this session, you will explore the way ULS incorporates mentoring and supportive wraparound services to support youth and create community change. This workshop will highlight effective strategies for connecting with gang-involved youth, as well as advocating for youth in court and other social service systems.

Class size is limited to 45.
