The Mikva Juvenile Justice Council (MJJC) wants to keep youth away from the criminal justice system. MJJC is developing new ways to help young people re-enter their communities for good. Chicago’s Mikva Challenge centered around developing youth civic leadership is training thirty council members ages 15-21 to serve as an advisory and advocacy body to their local county president, Toni Preckwinkle. Their recommendations on how to positively reenter youth into their community could affect thousands of juveniles in Illinois.
