The Harlem Justice Corps serves the communities of East and Central Harlem. Launched in September 2012, Harlem Justice Corps is a project of the Center for Court Innovation (CCI), in collaboration with the Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO), which provides internship and job placement services, and The College Initiative (TCI), which provides mentors for college-bound Corps members and assists with the college application and enrollment process.
Renovation projects undertaken by Harlem Justice Corps members have provided substantial benefit to the community. Complete projects include painting and cleaning the homeless shelter at Elmendorf Reformed Church and cleaning and landscaping at Marcus Garvey Park. Corps members also made a tangible contribution to Harlem’s cultural history as they repaired the ceiling and painted the floors, walls, and pipes at the National Black Theater.
