Opportunity: John Jay’s Navigator Certificate in Human Services & Community Justice
July 15, 2019 Opportunities
Do you provide direct services to other people involved in the criminal justice system — or want to start working in this field? Were you involved in the criminal justice system? Do you want to build your skills with professional development in a college environment?
John Jay College Prisoner Reentry Institute (PRI), John Jay faculty, employers, and people directly impacted by the justice system have created the Navigator Certificate.
The Navigator Certificate in Human Services and Community Justice is intended for people with lived experience in the criminal justice system who are working in entry-level human services positions (e.g., Peer Mentor, Community Navigator, Credible Messenger, Violence Interrupter, Outreach Specialist, Reentry Specialist) or seek employment in human services.
The Navigator Certificate curriculum combines the theory and ethics of human services with development of professional skills that employers and people with lived experience in the justice system have identified as keys to success in the workplace.
The program is free to students and fully funded by the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice.
The application deadline is July 31 and the 16-week program starts August 26.
