Youth Voice: SpeakUp Initiatives

CCA’s SpeakUp project has developed a curriculum that helps youth involved with Connecticut’s juvenile justice or child welfare systems learn self-advocacy skills and speak up to secure the services and supports that are critical to their safety and success. Youth in juvenile justice settings must be strong advocates for themselves to realize success as they take their place in the community. CCA attorneys and organizing staff meet with youth in a variety of community settings to support youth on their self-advocacy journey.
