The Advancing Justice Fund was created to support and reflect the values TeamChild has promoted for more than 25 years:

  • Innovation –  We work across systems with the call for a public health approach to addressing violence and safety for young people. We have built a practice around strengthening advocacy for youth and families across all aspects of their lives promoting the goal of long term stability and outcomes.
  • Impact – Over the 25 years that TeamChild has been working in the juvenile legal system in partnership with youth and community, there is a generational impact for young people. Together, we’ve: drastically reduced the use of incarceration, expanded pathways for diversion, and ensured young people have meaningful access to educational services.
  • Capacity and Sustainability –  Despite progress, racial disparities persist and point to the urgent need to transform systems to deliver equitable outcomes. We must make foundational investments in the work to truly bring our antiracism values into practice.

We leverage public, private, and in-kind support to provide holistic legal advocacy for young people and push for systemic changes that replace school exclusion, detention, and incarceration with restorative and community driven responses.
