Welcome To Resource Cell for Juvenile Justice (RCJJ)

Resource Cell for Juvenile Justice (RCJJ) is a Field Action Project with the Centre for Criminology and Justice, School of Social Work, TISS. RCJJ was conceptualized in 2005, with the objective of working on issues relating with children with a special focus on JCL. Focus on JCL’s was due to the fact that over the years these children were pushed to the fringes within the larger arena of child welfare, development, protection, and legal sector.

RCJJ hence took up the challenge of mainstreaming the issue of Juvenile Justice at large and with respect to JCL’s in particular by highlighting work on both the social and legal issues. Thereby, attempting to contextualize them within the child protection arena.

RCJJ operates from TISS with field based interventions in six districts of Maharashtra namely, Thane, Mumbai City, Mumbai Suburban, Pune, Amravati and Yavatmal.
