Mission Statement

The mission of CASES is to increase public safety through innovative services that reduce crime and incarceration, improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for success in the community.

Description

Launched in October 2012, Queens Justice Corps (QJC) is a six-month program serving young people residing in southeast Queens who have recent involvement in the justice system. Participants work with QJC staff to develop individualized educational and career plans as part of the program’s promotion of educational advancement and employment readiness. Participants also meet with a Community Advisory Board, consisting of community leaders and stakeholders, to plan and initiate community benefit projects.

Based in Jamaica, Queens, QJC utilizes a youth development framework emphasizing high expectations and accountability. The program is overseen by the Prisoner Reentry Institute of John Jay College, CUNY, with funding from the NYC Center for Economic Opportunity and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Young Men’s Initiative.
