Company Description
The San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department (JPD) provides services to youth who are alleged or have been found to have committed law violations under the jurisdiction of the San Francisco Juvenile Court and manages the Juvenile Justice Center, which houses both the official reception and detention center for youth who are detained as a result of an arrest for alleged criminal misconduct or a court order in San Francisco and San Francisco’s current long-term Secure Youth Treatment Facility.
The mission of the Juvenile Probation Department is to serve the needs of youth and families who are brought to our attention with care and compassion; to identify and respond to the individual risks and needs presented by each youth, to engage fiscally sound and culturally competent strategies that promote the best interests of the youth; to provide victims with opportunities for restoration; to identify and utilize the least restrictive interventions and placements that do not compromise public safety; to hold youth accountable for their actions while providing them with opportunities and assisting them to develop new skills and competencies; and contribute to the overall quality of life for the citizens of San Francisco within the sound framework of public safety as outlined in the Welfare & Institutions Code.
San Francisco is engaged in unprecedented efforts to re-imagine our approach to youth justice, with racial equity at the center of these efforts. City leadership has committed to broad system change, including the closure of the current Juvenile Hall, through collaborative processes that center the voice of youth, families, and community institutions. With the number of young people involved in the justice system – and in secure custody – at historic lows, San Francisco is poised to effect significant change to all aspects of our juvenile justice system, including reimagining secure custody – from the physical design to the programs and services provided to our young people.
JPD is committed to this process, and to a transformed approach to juvenile justice that can improve the lives of BIPOC youths, families, and communities, by achieving the following organizational equity centered goals:

Reimagine how the City addresses juvenile crime, from referral through reentry, in collaboration with the community and our system partners, emphasizing research and evidence-based practices, and sustainably addressing pervasive racial disparities throughout the system.
Advance a Whole Family Engagement strategy that places racial equity at its center to ensure that all youth have equal access to successful outcomes, and that advances youth-and family-centered case plans and goal development, with the supports and resources necessary to help justice-involved youth thrive.
Bolster equitable leadership development opportunities for BIPOC staff; implement change that meaningfully improves the workplace experience of BIPOC staff; enact our organizational belief of redemption and helping people to succeed.

The Director of Juvenile Facilities will lead transformational change efforts within the Division, reimagining how the Department addresses secure care and programming for detained youth and young adults grounded in positive youth development, research and evidence-based practices, and in collaboration with the community, the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, and system partners. The Director will foster a culture of constant quality improvement, organizational accountability, and support the development and sustainable implementation of the Department’s racial equity action plan.
This is a unique opportunity to join a team that is devoted to re-imagining Juvenile Justice, committed to racial equity, and focused on ensuring long-term public safety through the development, enrichment, and accountability of young people we serve throughout San Francisco.
