Maxwell Serchery Cohort 2
I joined the NYC Justice Corps because I wanted to develop skills in a professional environment.
The NYC Justice Corps brings young adults involved with the criminal justice system together with their communities to identify and address unmet community needs.
The William Hodson Senior Center is the oldest senior center in the United States. Corps members undertook an intensive clean-up campaign, restored the stage in the main dining room, and repainted the walls of the auditorium to create a vibrant atmosphere for the seniors.
Crotona Park is the largest park in the South Bronx and has partnered with the Justice Corps on a variety of outdoor and indoor projects. Corps members have repainted basketball courts and playground areas, as well as the walls of the pool house. Most recently, they helped design and plant a new garden landscape by building a fence around newly installed flowerbeds to prevent erosion.
