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!

Another Successful Bridging the Gap Event!

This week the Youth and Community Programs department here at the Red Hook Community Justice Center were fortunate enough to put together and host their 3rd installment in their Bridging the Gap Series: Youth, Community and Police titled GAME NIGHT! We had over 100 participants in attendance in just two hours, including more than 25 officers present from various local precincts (PSA 1, 76th, 72nd and PSA 9). With crowd favorite games such as a Birthday Line Up, Family Feud and Pictionary games just to name a few and ending the night with a “Juju on that Beat” dance off we were able to host a successful and fun-filled event! We understand that teambuilding is crucial in strengthening relationships, and our main goal is to also allow local youth and community members to partner up with officers.Many of our young people have expressed wanting to connect with officers but just did not know where to start.  The purpose of our series is to come together, break down most stereotypes and promo…

Summer College Trip 2016

Every summer the office of Youth and Community programs takes our youth program participants on an annual college trip. We like to explore different colleges  and university's including in places like New Jersey, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.

Last week students from our Just Works Summer Internship Program, which aims to connect teens and young adults to professional development opportunities teamed up with our Youth Court and a few of our Red Hook Community Resilience Corps members. Together they headed out with staff to Connecticut to visit and tour the University of Connecticut and the College of New Rochelle.
     It was a great day, especially to get out of the city and expose our youth to different campuses, dorm life and educational opportunities out there!  
We look forward to next year! #GOREDHOOK
