The Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project (YSRP) is a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive support to kids prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system, including individuals who were sentenced to life without parole as children (“juvenile lifers”).
We have two goals:
1. Help lawyers with low-income clients get their cases transferred from the adult criminal justice system to the juvenile justice system or get more favorable sentences; and
2. Help connect youth, juvenile lifers and their families with existing community resources and programs, so they have access to education, healthcare, stable housing and job placement.
