The NYC Justice Corps via The Research Foundation of the City University of New
The NYC Justice Corps brings young adults involved with the criminal justice system together with their communities to identify and address unmet community needs. Through meaningful and reparative service to their communities, internships, and job and educational opportunities, the NYC Justice Corps provides members with practical skills, social support and leadership training. By actively partnering with the NYC Justice Corps, communities own the success and reintegration of their young people as contributing members of society. The NYC Justice Corps aims to improve the education and employment outcomes of Corps members, keep them out of the criminal justice system, and support community development in specific New York City neighborhoods.
The NYC Justice Corps is a collaborative project led by PRI in close partnership with local government agencies and local private community service providers. It is funded by the City of New York’s Center for Economic Opportunity.
