Multi Agency Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council (MAJJCC)
The MAJJCC is governed by Welfare and Institutions Code Section 749.2, and its membership is ideally made up of many of Humboldt County’s youth-serving organizations, interested community members, and past juvenile justice system consumers and/or their families. The mission of the Council is to review and evaluate juvenile justice system services and linkages, to identify gaps, and to propose and develop innovative program solutions, as well as implementation and resource commitment recommendations regarding the County’s graduated continuum of juvenile services. MAJJCC is chaired by the Chief Probation Officer, meets on a quarterly basis, and is governed by the Brown Act.
Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Subcommittee
The Humboldt County Multi-Agency Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council is looking for a community member to join a subcommittee developing the plan for the secure youth treatment program. This is the County program for youth who would previously have been committed to the State Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). Per the Welfare and Institutions Code, a community member is defined as “as individuals who have experience providing community-based youth services, youth justice advocates with expertise and knowledge of the juvenile justice system, or have been directly involved in the juvenile justice system.”
If you are interested in participating as a subcommittee member, please fill out the application form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org. All members of the community are welcome to participate in the ongoing planning meetings even if you are not able to serve on the committee.
