Groundswell’s juvenile justice initiative serves New York City young people involved at all stages of the criminal justice continuum. Our work emphasizes sustained involvement with court-involved, incarcerated, and formerly-incarcerated youth to provide them the ongoing support needed to avoid delinquent behavior and promote their positive growth over time.

  • An intensive initiative to engage young people incarcerated within City and State-run detention facilities.

  • A special program for graduates of TurnStyle to develop the skills needed to transition into our afterschool and summer programs. 

  • An alternative detention program for youth arrested for minor offenses.
