Transforming U: DJJ

Transforming U Initiative

DJJ's Transforming U Initiative strives to improve employees' overall health and well-being in all aspects of their lives.

Transforming U

The Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is excited to introduce Transforming U. This agency-wide online initiative provides DJJ employees with resources and activities that promote a healthier lifestyle. 

Via Transforming U, employees can:

  • Discover the Six Pillars of Transforming U, which can help improve mental, spiritual, financial, social, emotional, and physical well-being.
  • Get the latest information on DJJ-specific healthy activities like our popular monthly Lunch and Learn video series or monthly wellness challenges.
  • Find contact information for dedicated Peer Support Team members who are ready to lend guidance, comfort, and support during moments of crisis.

The Transforming U initiative strives to improve employees' overall health and well-being in all aspects of their lives. So whether you want to read an article on managing compassion fatigue, watch a video on healthy eating habits, or simply speak with someone in need with Transforming U, you now have the tools to be a better "U."

Peer Support

The charge of DJJ Peer Support Team is to respond to team members or family members who experience critical or traumatic incidents.
