Projects and collaborations

The Gault Center pursues our mission and vision through four strategic priorities: Children’s Defense Specialization, Youth Rights & Equity, Defender-Driven Advocacy, and Youth, Family, and Community Partnerships.

Guided by those priorities, we conduct in-depth analyses in states to measure the delivery of youth defense; develop thoughtful, comprehensive responses to improve advocacy and ensure the protection of children’s rights; and lead nationwide initiatives to transform the juvenile legal system.
