About Us

We exist to advance the well-being of all children. The Burns Institute works to eliminate racial and ethnic disparity by building a community-centered response to youthful misbehavior that is equitable and restorative.

Though many areas of the juvenile justice system deserve reform efforts, the Burns Institute focuses on racial and ethnic disparity because youth of color are the most impacted. By improving outcomes for the children most impacted, we improve outcomes for all young people.

We facilitate a collaborative environment where community and system stakeholders work strategically, using data to reduce racial and ethnic disparity. We support capacity building of families and organizations to redirect resources to community-based interventions, thus reducing system involvement.
