BCS holds Community Advisory Board meeting
Our upcoming community service events included a youth-focused event that took place to commemorate Law Day, which was Tuesday, April 30th. Details about that successful event will be revealed in the next blog post! We are also looking forward to two dedicated clean-up service events at the end of May which will be done in partnership with two different Bronx agencies. Stay tuned for more information.
Our Adolescent Diversion Program (ADP) has been thriving since the opening of a dedicated ADP court part in the Bronx on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the hiring of a dedicated Social Worker at BCS who works with this population. Changes have been made operationally, including improvements to our in-court and clinical screening instruments as well maintaining an ongoing partnership with the District Attorney's Office to collaborate on our work with clients who are being seen by BCS at the pre-plea stage.
We will not hold a Community Advisory Board meeting in the summer, so our next one will take place in the Fall. We look forward to being able to share all of the BCS updates that will have occurred by then with our community partners.
