The National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) amplifies youth power, dismantles racism and other structural inequities, and builds just policies, practices, and culture in support of young people. Our efforts advance justice through research, community collaboration, impact litigation, and policy advocacy that fundamentally transforms our nation’s approach to education, health, immigration, foster care, and youth justice. Our vision is a world in which every young person thrives and has a full and fair opportunity to achieve the future they envision for themselves.
The Compassionate Education Systems (CES) initiative at NCYL aims to improve the educational outcomes of young people experiencing homelessness, involved in the foster care system, and/or on juvenile probation. This initiative operates at systems, youth, and community levels to ensure students experience compassion by the many adults entrusted to support them and are supported on their path to graduate from high school and the many opportunities ahead of them. To accomplish this vision, NCYL partners with school districts, state agencies, county offices of education, probation offices, child welfare offices, and community-based organizations.
