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!

Supporting the Staten Island Youth Justice Center at "Inside/Outside Legislative Theatre" Performance

On June 4th, a group of the Red Hook Youth Court members and staff went to see the "Theater of the Oppressed NYC" performance at the New School. Before attending this event, the youth court members had no idea that anything like this went on! While there, we learned that 12 different legislative laws were changed through something called "Legislative Theatre." The audience members get to be "spect-actors," which is great because the actual audience members got to participate in the play themselves and share their ideas.

The performances last night were put on by members of the Staten Island Youth Justice Center (part of the Center for Court Innovation Family). These two plays dealt with real life issues such as getting stopped for not paying your bus fare, arriving late to school and getting sent to the principal's office because of the "zero tolerance policy," getting into fights at school, not knowing one's rights, and being racially …

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.
