For many students, trouble at school can lead to their first contact with the criminal justice system. When schools suspend or expel a student, it increases the chance they will fall behind or drop out. Often, police become involved in school disciplinary matters. This is what experts call the School-to-Prison Pipeline.

All youth deserve full rights and the protection of a fair and equal justice system. At YAF, we know that means keeping students in school and out of the court system. We advocate for students and families dealing with education or court issues. By breaking the School-to-Prison Pipeline, we give kids a chance to grow into caring and healthy adults. We also raise awareness of policy issues that affect court-involved children.
