In the second episode of our two-part series about the NYC Justice Corps program, we’re bringing you an even closer look at the intricacies of the program’s community benefits project model.
On June 28, 2017, the Prisoner Reentry Institute (PRI) released a report entitled Building Communities, Changing Lives: The NYC Justice Corps Community Benefit Projects as part of the Occasional Series on Research in Reentry. At the event, panelists, NYC Justice Corps alumni, and audience members discussed the transformative power of community benefits projects.
This episode, the second in our series about NYC Justice Corps, features the voices of several NYC Justice Corps alumni, community-based host sites, and community stakeholders who participated in panels and conversations at the report launch.
Thank you to Katie Bancroft, our audio editor.
