Champions for Change

Champions for Change are individuals who worked with Models for Change who positively affected the lives of justice-involved youth, their families, and communities. Champions have helped pave the pathways away from delinquency and re-offending, and built young people's potential to lead successful lives and create positive relationships.

Champions for Change are distinguished not only by their longtime commitment to creating change on behalf of youth, but also because of their innovative and creative use of resources provided by Models for Change. Champions have adapted resources to local conditions and extended capabilities to achieve deeper insights, more evidence-based practices and policies better suited to the needs of justice-involved youth.

Champions for Change were nominated by their Models for Change peers.
