Thank you, SFY Supporters!

We are very grateful to you! SFY set an ambitious fundraising goal and reached 70% of it. Your support means we can do more for municipalities, law enforcement agencies, and youth.
A special thank you to the Marjorie H. Wilson Charitable Trust. Their very generous gift greatly helped us reach our goal.

Look where we're going in 2016

The first week of 2016 has proven to be busy and exciting. The phones have been ringing off the hook! This map shows the states in which we will be providing our Policing the Teen Brain training, the In the Presence of Children training, and the Juvenile Justice Jeopardy game.


Loss of a Giant

On January 7, 2016, the United States lost a giant, Judge Judith Kaye. The first woman to be elected to the position of Chief Justice of the New York Court of Appeals, the highest court of New York, Judge Kaye was a tireless, elegant, powerful leader who fought for the protection and support of children. Judge Kaye chaired the NYS Permanent Judicial Commission on Children since 1988. As Chair, she advanced a statewide effort in 2013 to stop the school to prison pipeline. With immeasurable quantities of charm and strategic insight, not to mention steely resolve, Judge Kaye changed the landscape on this and so many issues that affect children and youth in NYS. As a tribute to her impact, now states across the U.S. are replicating the work of the Commission to address the school to prison pipeline. Her courage, leadership, and integrity will be sorely missed. Her trailblazing accomplishments will live on as an inspiration.

A Dream Come True

Since 2013, Strategies for Youth has promoted the idea of the federal government developing a set of comprehensive law enforcement policies, that are developmentally and trauma-informed, to guide officers’ interactions with youth. Now, thanks to a grant from the Ohio Transformation Fund, SFY is developing these policies for the Cleveland Division of Police.

Until next month,

Lisa H. Thurau,
Executive Director
