The Youth & Justice Forum is a collaborative effort that builds trust between kids, cops, and the community. Interactive scenarios provide an opportunity to address issues of mistrust in a setting that allows for constructive dialogue, proactive engagement, and problem-solving. Police officers, lawyers, and law school students teach youth about their rights and responsibilities when in contact with law enforcement. In turn, police gain valuable insight into youth perspectives on policing, crime and justice.

The Uplift Foundation of Nevada’s core areas of civic engagement are: College Scholarships, Young Male Mentoring, Philanthropy and Youth Advocacy and Development. Through collaboration and innovation, Uplift has positively impacted the lives of more than 8,000 youth and adults since 2003. (Click the logo for more information)
