Event Dates

Youth Justice Action Month (YJAM) is an annual campaign where advocates come together to organize digital and in-person events and activities to raise awareness and inspire action on behalf of young people impacted by the justice system. 

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) and National Youth Justice Network (NYJN) partner annually to support youth justice advocates, state advisory groups, youth-serving organizations, and young leaders across the country in planning and implementing YJAM activities. In honor and in celebration of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) 50th anniversary, and with support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, CJJ and NYJN are pleased to announce the availability of funds to support 2024 YJAM mini-grants to increase public education and awareness about the JJDP Act, juvenile delinquency prevention, Youth Justice Action Month, and related activities across the nation. 

These funds are made available under OJJDP's FY 2023 Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act Outreach and Education Subgrants Program. This informational webinar will provide an overview of the project and outline the mini grant application process.
