We serve over 500 youth per year
On average, 94% of our court-involved Participants are not reconvicted of a new crime within three years of enrollment in our program.
On average, AFJ spends $6,300 per person to keep our youth out of jail compared to the more than $500,000 the state/city will spend incarcerating that same individual.

One of the most successful and cost-effective methods for crime prevention.

Avenues for Justice's (AFJ) services are comprehensive and our staff is on call 24/7. Read about our successful model.


AFJ Receives Gift from MacKenzie Scott’s Yield Giving Open Call

"Among the goals for the Open Call initiative is to provide opportunities for groups and individuals that meet with systemic obstacles and amplify the voices of those that may not normally be heard. By providing the youth of New York City a second chance to fulfill their potential and reach for their dreams, Avenues for Justice attempts to meet those goals every day. We thank Yield Giving Open Call for the opportunity to expand our education, mentorship, job training, and other services that we provide our clients.”
