Strategies for Youth (SFY) is a policy and training organization dedicated to improving interactions and relations between police and youth and to reducing disproportionate minority contact. SFY achieves its mission by equipping officers with knowledge and best practices for working with youth; and by educating youth on how to peacefully navigate their encounters with police. SFY provides police offices with training that integrates instruction in adolescent brain development and best practices for effectively de-escalating interactions with cutting edge research, develops leadership for adopting trauma-informed policing practices within law enforcement agencies, and educates vulnerable youth about their rights and how to respond appropriately to police.
