get INVOLVED

We currently serve both adults and youth who are justice-involved, transforming the delivery of justice in Delaware and implementing programs that facilitate fresh starts for victims of crime, youth at risk, and the incarcerated. We are a diverse staff with one vision–to continue the legacy of making a difference in Delaware. We are always looking for passionate people to help us listen, amplify, and act for justice.

We have full-time, intern, and volunteer positions available and would love to hear from anyone who is passionate about seeing real change for those affected by the legal system in Delaware.
