About Us

YJI is a nonprofit organization serving youth in San Francisco and Alameda Counties. YJI works to address the needs of young people involved in California’s juvenile justice system and provide support so that they may exit the system and transition into healthy adults. Since its founding in 2002, YJI has offered three primary services for juvenile justice system involved youth—mentoring, youth advocacy, and mental health therapy—all of which are offered both pre and post release so as to ensure continuity and support as youth transition from detention back into their communities.
