Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $618,307)

The Harlem Community Justice Center's Youth Justice Project will have three principal components: 1) a community service learning and youth leadership program that would serve both mandated and voluntary youth; 2) an attendance court aimed at reducing truancy at Isaac Newton Junior High school for Science and Math; and 3) a community organizing effort that would bring together dozens of youth service providers in Harlem to strengthen collaboration and improve service delivery to youths and families. Each year, it is expected that 100 youth, including both mandatory and voluntary referrals, will participate in these services and 40 organizations will be part of the Justice Center's community network.
