McCullum Youth Court
The mission of McCullum Youth Court (MYC) is to enable all youth to realize more fully their potential by offering youth offenders a second chance through restorative justice, peer accountability, and empowering opportunities. McCullum Youth Court engages all youth – especially those at risk for entering the juvenile justice system -- in expansive experiences related to law and justice with the aim of changing young lives and impacting communities towards a better present day.
Based in Oakland, MYC was founded in 1994 to fill a gap in services for youth at risk for incarceration by providing early intervention and diverting first time youth offenders from the traditional juvenile justice system. Today, the agency reaches 3000 youth and families each year, including 300 youth offenders. Using a peer justice model for youth offenders, and providing law and justice related experiential programming for middle and high school students, MYC is in a dynamic period of strategic growth.
