Justice Community Plus: Somethin' Is Cooking In The Community

On July 24th 2015, two communities came together to offer opportunities and possibilities to a group of young people over grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.  The meet and greet took place at the S.O.S Crown Heights Mediation Center where youth from Bedford Stuyvesant and Crown Heights gathered to hear about innovative youth programming offered through the Brownsville Community Justice Center.  

Participants we’re excited to find out that Justice Community Plus (JCP) came to recruit and usher in the next cohort for the upcoming year! Our Justice Community Program Coordinator, Kayin Latson and Youth and Community Engagement Specialist Tarisse Iriarte introduced the benefits of the JCP program to over 20 attentive listeners.

Potential participants learned that they have an opportunity to earn OSHA certifications through Click Safety, take courses like graphic design through our partners at City Tech and explore a wealth of career options through our job readiness intensive. Additionally, youth were excited to know they would be giving back to their communities by participating in community benefit projects in Bedford Stuyvesant and Crown Heights.  Tarisse explained how rewarding the program is to young people who are in pursuit of their goals and just need support getting there.

We are looking forward to the community celebrating these young leaders while ushering in the newbees!  This will be a memorable time for everyone as we are so proud of all the great work our youth have done and will continue to do in the Bedstuy/Crown Heights Communities.
