For the past 25 years, PJDC has been driven by a vision that all young people in California should have access to outstanding legal representation, receive fair and equitable treatment in the courts, and be provided with credible, trauma-informed, and community-supported alternatives to incarceration that foster success.

PJDC is hiring a full-time Capacity Building and Training Director, and an half-time Administrative Manager.  These are three-year grant positions.

The Capacity Building and Training Director will work specifically on two grant-based programs focused on achieving the vision of DJJ realignment, including decreasing the number of youth transferred to adult court, decreasing racial and ethnic disparities, and building the capacity of lawyers and community to make sure that youth are provided with real alternatives to long-term detention. Part of this work will be statewide, and part will focus specifically in San Joaquin and Riverside counties.

The Administrative Manager plays a critical role in managing our membership and listserv, donations, trainings, MCLE certifications – essentially, helping us to keep PJDC moving.
