The Center for Court Innovation's Brooklyn Justice Initiatives (BJI) seeks to re-engineer the experience of criminal court in Brooklyn, New York by providing judges and attorneys meaningful alternatives to bail, fines, and jail sentences. Operating out of Kings County Criminal Court, Brooklyn Justice Initiatives is a team of social service providers, court-based resource coordinators, and others who seek to improve the quality of justice. By providing meaningful pre-trial supervised release and post-conviction sentencing options, Brooklyn Justice Initiatives seeks to use an arrest as a window of opportunity to change the direction of a participant’s life and avoid the harmful effects of incarceration.
Project Reset is an early diversion program that provides people who have been arrested an opportunity to complete arts-based programming at the Brooklyn Museum and within the community instead of going to court to face formal prosecution. Upon successfully completing Project Reset, the original case is not prosecuted, there is no record of a court appearance and the arrest is sealed.
Brooklyn Justice Initiatives, in partnership with the Brooklyn Museum, is seeking two Teaching Artists. Reporting to the Project Reset Program Manager, Teaching Artists will facilitate biweekly, arts-based programming at Brooklyn Museum and in BJI community spaces for Project Reset participants ages 18-25 and older. This innovative collaboration will bring Project Reset to the entire borough of Brooklyn, leveraging the power of the arts to provide a meaningful alternative to conventional prosecution of low-level crimes.
Part-time hourly; average of 3 hours per week. Planning sessions are 1.5hrs in length and will take place on the off-week/day of programming.
Application Deadline: Sunday February 6th, 2022
