This week the office of Youth and Community Programs held their Fall Graduation and Induction Ceremony. The current cohort of Red Hook Youth Court members were recognized for all of their work within this past year. While a few of them will continue serving on the court, others will be moving onto other programs and begin preparing for college. Twelve brand new trainees were officially inducted after successfully completing training for the past eight weeks.
There was a full house, with Justice Center staff, family members, friends and officers from the 72nd, 76th and PSA1 precinct who came out to show some support. Selena Rodriguez, a Youth Court alumni also came to speak to everyone about her experience as a member and offer advice to the new trainees. Special guest included Judge Calabrese and Karen Broughton from Assemblyman Felix w. Ortiz Office.
Congratulations to our members, we are looking forward to the New Year! #GOREDHOOK
