Urban League Justice Programs

The CPI program is segmented in the following subgroups: iDream - Elementary School Students Ages 10-13; iReality – Middle School Students Ages 10-15; and iFuture – High School, College, and Vocational Students Ages 16-21.
Project EMBRACE is a three-to-six month diversion program for first-time juvenile offenders which provide alternatives to traditional criminal justice processes. Program activities include weekly life skills management classes that focus on self-esteem building, values, teenage pregnancy prevention, HIV education, and asset building. This program is centered on the restorative justice model where offenders and victims meet face-to-face to discuss the events that transpired. It provides victims, offenders, parents, facilitators, and community members with understanding and closure.
The Village Program is a community-based pilot program designed to empower, educate, and provide opportunities for youth between the ages of 10 - 17 to serve as leaders within their respective communities. The program serves as a resource to cultivate and inspire positive changes. The program is also an initiative to connect youth to their communities, families and each other while developing their strengths and unlocking their potential.
