Beyond the Box: How to Uplift Emerging Leaders

Resource Date
Dec 2023

This toolkit was authored by CCAS Consultant Kyla Woods, in collaboration with fellow members of the Youth Leaders in Action (YLA) Committee of Washington D.C.'s Juvenile Justice Advisory Group. We would like to extend a deep thank you to the YLA for allowing us to leverage their passion project as an opportunity for us all to learn how to elevate young adults as leaders.

Beyond the Box is a powerful resource to guide State Advisory Groups to further discussions or efforts to enhance youth collaboration and engagement. It provides concrete strategies and recommendations that SAGs can employ to build authentic, sustained youth partnerships with directly impacted individuals, grounded in inclusion, innovation, and leadership development to advance youth justice transformation.
