Rising Stars

At last week's annual Rising Stars event, participants in the Red Hook Community Justice Center's youth programs had the chance to be honored by Congresswoman Nydia Velasquez and Borough President Marty Markowitz. Project Director James Brodick says, "After all these years, we have had kids start in our baseball league, join Youth Court, be part of our summer internship and then become Americorps members. It's a great feeling to see young people choosing the Justice Center as the place they want to spend their free time and participate in extra-curricula activities."
