Civic Justice Corps
Young people who have been incarcerated, who are on probation or on parole need a second chance to succeed in life. CJC engages those who’ve been involved with the penal system, who are not working or in school. Program participants receive job training, personal guidance from qualified leaders, a modest stipend and educational opportunities.
In return, corps members improve their communities by planting trees in bare urban landscapes, weatherizing the homes of low-income neighbors, replacing sidewalks on dilapidated streets, and supporting efforts to “green” local communities.
- Age 16 to 24
