Pete Colbenson

Pete Colbenson is the JJIE’s network weaver or community builder. He is retired director of the state’s Children and Youth Coordinating Council and previously ran a detention center. Witt says, “We asked people in Georgia’s juvenile justice circles who was the most connected person. The answer repeatedly was Pete Colbenson. So when we heard he was getting tired of just fishing in his retirement, we reeled him in. And I might add he is a keeper.”
