Youth and Community Outreach
Juvenile Justice Jeopardy
Juvenile Justice Jeopardy™ teaches youth how to interact with officers, as well as the short and long term legal consequences of their actions with officers and peers. Derived from the popular TV game show, Juvenile Justice Jeopardy™ is a fun, interactive way for youth to explore what they think they know, to correct their misconceptions, and to discover important facts about the legal system.
Tools for Youth
SFY has developed tools to help youth interact more safely with law enforcement. Our Think About It First! cards teach youth about the potential consequences of arrest and involvement in the juvenile justice system. SFY’s Be Smart with Police pamphlet educates youth about how to behave when interacting with police officers.
Youth Voices Contest
Strategies for Youth sponsors an annual art and writing contest called Youth Voices Contest. Youth are invited to write an essay, poem, or submit a piece of art on the annual topic. The topic for 2018 was: How would you improve police/youth interactions? Cash prizes are awarded for best writing and artwork in two age categories: 12-14 and 15-18
