Leaders needed! Youth and Adults from rural Alaska encouraged to apply!
The Alaska Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (AJJAC) has several membership appointments expiring in March 2018 and is soliciting applications for new members. While a variety of positions are turning over, there is a specific need for youth members (under the age of 24 at the time of appointment), members who have previously been under the jurisdiction of the juvenile justice system, and members representing rural Alaskan communities.
The AJJAC is comprised of committed citizens from all parts of Alaska who have experience with youth and juvenile justice issues. This non-partisan volunteer group is appointed by the Governor for terms of up to three years. Primary responsibilities include assisting the Division of Juvenile Justice in allocating federal grant funds and maintaining compliance with federally mandated juvenile holding practices. The AJJAC makes annual recommendations to the Governor and legislature regarding juvenile justice issues.
