Over 350 young people came out to attend our 2nd annual Youth Summer Internship and Program Fair at the Red Hook Community Justice Center! This turn out far exceeded our expectations and clearly demonstrated the initiative young people have to find employment and learn new skills. Youth were able to explore summer offerings from the Red Hook Youth Court, The New York Juvenile Justice Corps (our AmeriCorps program), the New York City Parks Department, The Center for Family Life, and Groundswell Community Mural Project. Our local TV news station, Brooklyn News 12 was also on-hand to do a televised news report on the fair. The Fair is part of the Justice Center's Positive Youth Justice Initiative which is aimed to connect local young people to positive, skill-building opportunities and empower them to use their skills and talents to improve lives and communities.
