Juvenile Justice

Know Your Rights Videos

Adapted from our graphic guide on the juvenile justice system (see below), these 5 minute videos help teenagers understand their rights when they are stopped by the police or charged with a crime. Both of these videos were supported by the Northwest Justice Project and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Models for Change InitiativeAvailable in English or Espanol.

Stopped by the Police?



Charged with a Crime?

 

Washington Know Your Rights - Graphic Guide

This publication is designed for teens who want to learn about their rights in the juvenile justice system in Washington State. As a Models for Change partner, TeamChild adapted this guide from an original Illinois publication created by the Know Your Rights (KYR) Project at Northwestern Law. Both the original and this adapted publication were supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Models for Change Initiative.

Washington Judicial Colloquies

These judicial colloquies are designed to be a user-friendly tool for judges.  They are written at an elementary school level with the goal of increasing a youth’s understanding of court processes and orders. A Do’s and Don’ts form can easily be tailored by practitioners to include local practices.  Click on the icon below to download your free copy.

For more information about this project, listen to a recorded webinar sponsored by the National Juvenile Justice Network.

The Judicial Colloquies Project came out of our JIDAN work.
