The purpose of the Transforming Justice for Youth, Family & Community Conference is to improve the way we work together to serve youth at risk and in trouble. The conference is designed to reach that goal by providing a unique opportunity to establish a foundation for building stronger relationships and partnerships between the court and other systems that serve children, the social service community, parents and youth.


Invited by the Steering Committee, are judges Assistant States Attorneys, Public Defenders, Probation Officers ,School Principals, Service Providers, parents and youth to engage in facilitated and meaningful conversations about the needs and issues of youth in their  particular communities. 


This Conference is a follow-up to the 2007 "Connecting the Pathways" Conference in Springfield Illinois. There, five Juvenile Justice Initiatives:


explored and discovered how working together creates a juvenile justice system where youth are treated equally and fairly. Since each community has its own particular challenges, each community can create its tailored approaches to its issues, and better engage support from the larger community.
