FOCUS AREA: Youth, Families, & Communities

Family & Youth Development Programs

Early attempts to support healthy family development can prevent subsequent child and family risk factors—including academic problems, school dropout, antisocial behavior, and justice system contact—and reduce recidivism. These CJII family and youth development programs are expanding their capacity and developing innovative programming to provide holistic support to at-risk young people and their families.

Foster Youth Transitioning to Adulthood

Young people who age out of foster care without a permanent family arrangement are at significantly elevated risk of criminal justice system involvement and other negative life outcomes. Recognizing that investments in remedial education and pathways to employment best equip this population to transition out of care, these CJII programs are expanding and enhancing their capacity to work with young New Yorkers, ages 16- to 24-years-old, who are about to transition, or have recently transitioned, from foster care.

Youth Opportunity Hubs

Recognizing that young people utilize supportive services at higher rates when such services are easily accessible, this “neighborhood Hub” approach coordinates family, community, school, and city resources in attractive and convenient locations within underserved neighborhoods. Youth Opportunity Hubs are attractive social spaces and link neighborhood service providers to provide one-stop, comprehensive support for at-risk children, teens, and young adults in order to prevent them from becoming involved in the criminal justice system.
