COLLABORATION HELPS COURT-INVOLVED YOUTH OVERCOME LEGAL BARRIERS
CASES partners with Youth Represent, a community nonprofit that represents youth facing collateral problems stemming from their court-involvement. Youth Represent helps CASES participants understand their rights and responsibilities in the court system so they can move past their court-involvement and achieve their goals.Read More
CASES' youth programs aim to help New York City's justice-involved young people, ranging in age from 13-20, to lead productive, crime-free lives. Our approach is distinguished by individualized case management, evidence-based programming, and group activities that build positive peer associations. For many, this is the first time in their lives that they are participating in activities that help them set personal goals and develop the skills they need to reach them. As a result, hundreds of our youth participants have enrolled in secondary, post-secondary, and vocational institutions, acquired their GEDs, found unsubsidized employment, and ended their involvement in the justice system.
