Program Information

 

Programming through the Midtown Community Court consists of an interactive 2-hour group session grounded in procedural and restorative justice philosophies. Participants engage in conversations that encourage connection and reflection about the criminal justice system, the experience and impact of arrest, and perspectives on accountability. Young adults may instead choose to participate in an arts-based session at the New Museum.

 

Spanish-speaking groups are offered at least once per month. Individual counseling sessions are also offered on an as-needed basis. Click the logo for additional information.
