SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE
MAJP is an advocate for federal policy change that promotes alternative to zero-tolerance discipline. MAJP will work to eliminate the school to prison pipeline by working with organizations, local, state, and federal programs that promote policies and programs that help to create positive approaches to school disciple and positive school climates. We will facilitate and help establish multiple stakeholder groups comprised of youth, parents, educators, advocates, and members of the juvenile judicial system. Committed to the plight of today’s youth, MAJP will work with district school boards, school administrators and juvenile organizations to provide intensive support to students with particular risk factors. MAJP will facilitate life skills workshops that include conflict resolution, and problem-solving skills.
Our goal is to provide youth with as many opportunities to live a productive and law-abiding life as possible. We will sponsor programs that offer youth an opportunity to develop these skills through community service venues. MAJP is committed to creating opportunities for civic engagement, in lieu of suspension from school, and during periods of out of school suspension.
