Last year, under the leadership of Judge (and former Council Member) Jared Rice, the New Rochelle City Court established a new “Opportunity Youth Part” (OYP) aimed at providing positive guidance to young people ages 16-24. This innovative program offers intensive, individualized support to its participants, including job training, mental health counseling, and mentoring. This week, the City Council allocated $70,000 to fund OYP’s expanding case management, helping to ensure that the program reaches as many vulnerable youngsters as possible. It’s a great example of partnership between government, the courts, not-for-profits, and community volunteers with the goal of achieving positive life outcomes for an at-risk population, while also enhancing the safety of our city as a whole.
