The mission of DJP is to serve local justice-involved youth and adults through service, advocacy, and education. DJP will seek to accomplish this mission through holding at least bi-weekly meetings, educational training, service events, and government engagement. Educational training will include hosting guest speakers who are experts on the criminal justice system as well as training for rehabilitation programs. Service events will include but are not limited to: - Fundraising for phone calls, food, and toiletries, - Pen pals and book exchanges for intellectual stimulation, - Working with local nonprofits, and - Re-entry and rehabilitation training, including GED tutoring. Government engagement efforts will be conducted by working with local and state government and Duke’s government relations team. DJP will use this engagement to lobby for laws which will decrease mass incarceration and mitigate its effects.
