Red Hook Youth Court Fall Recognition and Induction Ceremony

On December 18th, the Red Hook Youth Court acknowledged our current Members for all their hard work and dedication. Staff and guest also said farewell to a few Members who are leaving to focus on their senior year in high school. Lastly, the Honorable Judge, Alex Calabrese was the Key Note Speaker and inducted a new group of Youth Court Members to join the court. The Members took the time to share their favorite moments while being a part of the Youth Court and the Inductees shared their excitement for what is to come in the New Year. 

Please stay tuned for what is to come from us in 2015! Happy Holidays!

Red Hook Youth Court's Socks For the Sole Sock Drive

This winter the Red Hook Youth Court will be holding a Sock Drive. We are asking that when you are out doing your Holiday shopping please pick up a pack of brand new/un-used socks. Our goal is to partner with a local pantry and donate the socks along with snacks to people in need. This winter will be a cold one so we want to help the less fortunate keep warm. A little goes a long way, so PLEASE DONATE! See the flyer below for more details.

Youth Court on Giving Tuesday

On Giving Tuesday (Dec 2, 2014), the Youth Court Members participated in Holiday Mail For Heroes through the American Red Cross. They created letters and cards to send to military members as well as their families thanking them for their service and to let them know we are thinking about them during this holiday season. The kids seemed to really enjoy writing these letters and some of them got really creative!

Red Hook Youth Court November Food Drive

For the month of November the Red Hook Youth Court Members held a food drive and collected non-perishable food. On November 25th, after Youth Court hearings the members and staff walked over to the Food First Pantry located in Red Hook and donated all the food collected just in time for Thanksgiving. Thank you to everyone who donated! It was a small gesture by our members but they believe a little does go a long way. Happy Holidays!
