The Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections (ADJC) is dedicated to serving the citizens of Arizona by providing effective rehabilitative services to the young people in our care, with the ultimate goal of building safer communities. As a public safety agency, ADJC has a critical responsibility to protect the young people entrusted to our care, our employees, and the public.
ADJC's commitment to evidence-based, developmentally appropriate and trauma-responsive programming ensures that the young people in our care receive the support they need to successfully complete their individualized goals. This, in turn, facilitates their transition into the community and empowers them to become successful members of society.
ADJC recognizes that our ability to fulfill our mission relies on attracting, coaching, and empowering a highly engaged and mission-driven workforce. Therefore, we foster a culture that values our employees and equips them with the tools and resources they need to deliver high quality services. By enhancing continuous quality improvement and accountability, ADJC will continue strengthening its processes and services to fulfill our mission.
