Youth Court Team Building


On November 20, 2014, Youth Court staff did two team building activities. The first was “See Say Do” and the second was an “Occupation Guessing Game”. Both activities were fun and allowed the youth court members to practice their listening skills and to work together which is something they have to do during normal youth court duties.  Ever so often we like to do activities such as these to remind the members to hone their skills for the work that they do, but in a fun way. The members had a blast!

  2. Conducting team building activities is a really great way to hone the members’ skills in working as a team, and in building their leadership skills. There are a lot of great ideas for icebreakers and other games for team building activities out the web nowadays, so don’t hesitate to check them out. It’s always nice to have a lot of variety of activities. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us, Sabrina! Good luck with your future endeavors!

Hasta Luego Benny!

...we'd rather say until later than good-bye. We just learned that one of our amazing court officers, Lt. Benny Castillo, is being transferred to another court. Lt. Castillo has worked at the Justice Center for 5 years. He was always a great leader, and always went beyond the call of duty to lend a helping to staff and residents. The Justice Center is also gearing up to send off Lt. Bobby Vitucci (more on that to come). You can read the article below to see what makes our court officers so special and important to the Justice Center.

Thank You AmeriCorps Members

Last Friday we held a graduation for our AmeriCorps members, the last class of the New York Juvenile Justice Corps. Over the past year, the members have served throughout the Center for Court Innovation's New York City projects at various positions within our courts and community programs. They served as a bridge to the communities we work in, and provided valuable support to our projects and various initiatives. The members will be missed and we wish them the best in all their future endeavors.
