The Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project (YSRP) works to keep children out of adult jails and prisons, and to bring home people who were sentenced as children to life in prison without the possibility of parole (Juvenile Lifers). Through policy advocacy and in coalition with partner organizations, YSRP also works to raise awareness of the issues that face young people in the adult criminal legal system, and to reform the system.
