DRJ Program Overview At A Glance

Advising Generation Z's 501(c)(3) organization is pleased to announce the availability of funds for school districts and county juvenile services to participate in a new initiative called "Discipline Reimagined Journey" (DRJ). This program aims to convert school districts, juvenile courts, and JJAEP into DRJ sites where they can cultivate a culture of accountability, collaboration, empathy, and transparency among first-time and low-risk youth ages 10-24 and their families. Awards range from $1,500 - $10,000 for one year. These funds will be awarded competitively and should specifically support organizations selected to convert into DRJ sites. Selected organizations will receive hands-on support to implement a new disciplinary system called AdvisingGenz.
