The National Center for Youth Opportunity and Justice (NCYOJ) aims to improve life opportunities for youth through systems and practice improvement initiatives. Since 2001, the NCYOJ has translated research into policy and practice to produce more efficient and effective systems, generate better outcomes for vulnerable young people, and maintain safety for youth and their families, youth-serving professionals, and communities as a whole.

The NCYOJ resource library contains information and tools that support state, local, and tribal policy and practice improvement efforts to ensure the well-being of vulnerable young people. NCYOJ’s resources are aimed to help a variety of audiences, including family advocates, juvenile courts, juvenile detention/corrections staff, juvenile probation, law enforcement, legislators, school resource officers, service providers, tribal nations, administrators/program directors, and educators. This resource library comprises various topics surrounding the well-being of young people in different formats, such as newsletters, presentations, infographics, podcasts, publications, toolkits, and videos. These resources can be filtered by types of products, topics covered, publication date, and intended audience. These options make finding the right resource easy.
