This resource directory provides information about resources available to young people in New York City who are leaving detention or have been involved with the criminal/juvenile justice system.
Community programs can offer support in areas such as housing, practical assistance, education, legal rights, and job preparation and searches, as well as drug and alcohol treatment. We hope this directory will help those in need to identify existing community resources that youth need in order to become successful.
The guide was put together by members of the Interagency Coordinating Council Court-Involved Youth Work Group.
The Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) on Youth annual report for 2018 highlights its activities over the past year. It focuses on the ICC's goal of developing collaborations between member agencies to better serve New York City youth, families and communities.
This guide is available in several languages and offers valuable information to help parents understand the juvenile and criminal justice systems, their child's legal rights, and their important role in the process.
This report provides a five point cross-agency action plan to meet the needs of young people with behavioral challenges. These include 1) Improve needs assessment and planning; 2) Stronger collaboration among after school providers, schools, community-based mental health services and families to share information and identify existing resources to meet children's needs; 3) Develop guidance among after school providers; 4) Increased training and technical assistance; and 5) Specialized after school services for youth who cannot be effectively served in non-specialized programs.
