Fight For Reform

The Gault Center invites and welcomes all defenders of young people to participate in a range of ongoing programs and activities. Please consider engaging with your local regional youth defender center, applying to become an Ambassador for Racial Justice, applying for our Youth Defender Advocacy Program Summer Academy, and signing up for any of our listserv groups.

Regional Youth Defender CentersĀ 


The Gault Center collaborates with nine Regional Youth Defender Centers. Each Center coordinates activities in the states within its region and keeps the Gault Center connected to the front lines of youth defense. Regional Centers offer targeted state-based training and technical assistance, provide case support for complex or high-profile cases, and facilitate organizing and networking opportunities for youth defenders.

Each Regional Center is led by two or more co-directors who are accomplished or emerging youth defense leaders and by Advisory Boards drawn from every state within the Region.
