About Juvenile in Justice



For the last 8 years, Juvenile in Justice has documented the U.S. juvenile justice system, bringing the public images from ‘the inside’ and first-person stories of incarcerated youth. We hope that by giving visibility and voice to these kids, we can change the discussion about the facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist, and occasionally, harm them.

According to the American Correctional Association, the average cost to incarcerate a juvenile for a 9-12 month period is between $66,000 and $88,000. In California, the cost is $224,712.
