Our community testimonials are from the very people who make the Institute for Youth Justice possible- various members of local law enforcement in Spartanburg County.
7th Judicial Circuit Solicitor
“I always enjoy the opportunity to work with the Institute for Youth Justice. The students always ask good questions as we discuss the criminal justice system. The experience will hopefully lead some of them to pursue careers as judges, solicitors, public defenders, and police officers as they gain knowledge about our justice system.”
Beauty Marks for Girls Founder
“I believe that one of the most detrimental risks to youth is living through life with untapped potential. As a guest speaker, I could see that the youth in the audience had potential that was not only seen but was nurtured and valued by the Institute for Youth Justice.”
We could not do The Institute for Youth Justice without local law enforcement and non-profits who are committed to our youth understanding their rights and responsibilities as citizens.
