On Thursday, August 28th the Red Hook Youth Court members visited the U.S District Courthouse and were able to attend a Naturalization Ceremony lead by the Honorable Judge William Kuntz.
Following the ceremony Youth Court members went up to Judge Kuntz's courtroom where he greeted the members and allowed them to ask him questions regarding law, justice and current social issues. The discussion and visit as a whole went very well.

For the past year the Red Hook Youth Court has been establishing its relationship with the Eastern District’s U.S. Attorney's Office and District Courthouse. So far we have visited the courthouse twice and most recently held one of our bi-annual Graduation and Induction ceremonies in the Ceremonial Courtroom of the Courthouse.
This Fall for their third time a few of the U.S. Attorney's will be coming back to the Red Hook Youth Court to facilitate a few training sessions for our upcoming training cohort. We hope to maintain our relationship as our members continue to advocate for juvenile justice.
