How is the work you are doing today serving the global or local community? I currently work as a public servant following 15 years of nonprofit sector service. My role at the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is to advance youth access to justice, support states' efforts to improve and reform their juvenile justice systems, and promote data-driven, developmentally appropriate, trauma-informed approaches to juvenile justice.
