We are part of the village that transforms youth


Founder/Executive Director


Alisha Johnson, Ed.D. 

Dr. AJ first encountered juveniles in 1998, while touring a correctional facility in Hartford, CT. During that visit, she made a commitment to do all that she could to keep youth who have been in contact with the criminal justice system from becoming repeat offenders. JUNITY is her way of honoring that commitment. "I love spending time with people who are doing and have done time."

We need mentors to serve youth in the Collin County Juvenile Detention Center, and in the community.  If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please email Dr. Alisha Johnson  at alisha@wearejunity.org and specify if you prefer mentoring juveniles in the detention center, or at-risk youth in the community.
