Red Hook Youth Court Spring Recognition and Induction Ceremony


 
On June 16th, 2015 the Red Hook Youth Court opened its doors to family, friends, guest and staff for our Spring Recognition and Induction Ceremony where we acknowledged our members for their hard work and dedication. Honorable Judge, Alex Calabrese was the Key Note speaker of the ceremony. He is a huge supporter of the Red Hook Youth Court and truly believes in the mission of the program. We had a full house, with laughs, smiles and hugs!


 
10 members are moving on to other endeavors, in which 4 of those 10 are graduating seniors from High School who will be starting college this Fall. 10 Members will be staying on to serve as mentors and 10 newly inducted youth court members who were sworn in by Sergeant William Bauman, of the Unified Court System will all be sitting on the Youth Court and beginning their journey this Summer.
 
Additionally, Jamilah Daniels and Ann Doc, graduating members from Youth Court and High School wrote speeches on their experiences within the program, the gratitude for the staff leadership and mentorship and appreciation for their fellow members throughout their term of service. Jamilah and Ann also gave advice to the newly inducted members on how the work they will be doing is extremely important but to remember to also have fun while doing it. As a final surprise staff presented the 4 of our college bound members each with a $100 gift card to Target to help them with school supplies and prepare for their first semester in college! It was a fun and inspiring time, we look forward to continuing the hard work in and out of the courtroom.

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










A Day of Service!

Today, July 10th our JustWorks: Summer Internship Participants teamed up with the Justice Center's Neighborhood Restitution Crew and the Community Service Supervisors to help with a project at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church. The church's gate spans about  three blocks and is extremely rusted and has chipped paint. Our project today was the scrape away the loose paint in order to prep it for a new coat of paint in a few weeks. It is a large job but we were out and ready to work!


It was a beautiful day and our interns wore their Justice Center shirts proudly and cheered each other along. The Father of the church was extremely  grateful and even people passing and driving by were cheering us on and thanking us as well. Projects like this are a good way to give back to the community through teamwork. It is the first of many projects we are working on with the church to help repair and beautify it. It was a great first service day for the internship program!  Thank you to Derek a…
