Photojournalism by Our Sister Publications

Youth Today, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE) and Fresh Take Georgia are our sister publications written of a team of dedicated professional journalists working to bring you the latest news and information from across our nation affecting youth and juvenile justice, and local Georgia news focused on state government and health. We share the stories they publish that have large collections of photos as stories and galleries here on Bokeh Focus.

Youth Today is a respected independent, national and digital media publication that is read by thousands of professionals in the youth service field. Youth Today adheres to high-quality journalistic standards and for over 20 years has provided readers with professional news coverage dedicated to examining a wide spectrum of complex issues in the youth services industry from diversity to community-based youth work.

The Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE) fosters a community of support around the issues facing the youth of our country. JJIE readers and social media followers are made up of people who are interested in doing what is best for at-risk kids, along with industry professionals who work with children on a daily basis, and citizens from Georgia and around the United States. JJIE covers juvenile justice and related issues nationally on a daily basis.
