Santa Barbara County Juvenile Detention Center, Santa Maria, California

Based in Philadelphia, YSRP improves outcomes for kids in the adult criminal justice system through technical support for attorneys at sentencing and for youth upon release from prison. Through the dissemination of best practices and hands-on support resources, YSRP enhances the capacity of system actors to approach sentencing and re-entry through a youth-specific lens, leading to shorter sentences at the outset and lower recidivism rates due to successful re-entry and reintegration into the community upon release.


Support from Echoing Green and the Open Society Foundations

YSRP is proud to announce that out of nearly 3,000 applicants, we were selected along with the leaders of forty-one other organizations to receive 18 months of funding and foundational leadership and business development support through the Open Society Foundations Black Male Achievement (BMA) Fellowship, powered by Echoing Green.  For more information visit:
