Our Mission

The Youth Law Center advocates to transform foster care and juvenile justice systems across the nation so every child and youth can thrive.

About Us

Our work aims to ensure children are not only protected from harm and dangerous conditions, but also receive the support, opportunities and love they need to grow up healthy and happy. YLC has led the field for over four decades to transform systems to be truly child-focused and research informed through litigation, policy reform, media advocacy, collaborative system change projects, training and advice, and public education.

Justice for children is love, nurturing, and opportunity. When children are not with family, there must be a sense of urgency to ensure they are receiving the love, nurturing and support every child needs and deserves. Join us in fighting for justice for children and youth in the foster care and juvenile justice systems.

Your support extends our reach, amplifies our voice and deepens our impact.

Thank you!
