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 are in need of volunteers to be mentors for youth who are detained in juvenile detention. We also need volunteers to assist with social media, advocacy, family support, and special events.
