Brooklyn Treatment Court Educational and Vocational Services

All BTC participants are administered an educational and vocational assessment to determine employment skills, educational levels and potential learning disabilities. This assessment evaluates educational, financial and entitlement status as well as military and work history to determine appropriate services. Based upon the results of this assessment, each participant is provided with an individualized service plan to help them achieve their educational and vocational goals.

Brooklyn Treatment Court works with a variety of state and local agencies as well as community based providers to assist participants in achieving their educational and vocational goals. Participants are matched with programs that best fit their need and skill level.

In addition, the Brooklyn Treatment Court offers a variety of onsite workshops and services. The Educational/Vocational Coordinator regularly conducts banking workshops, library tours, young adult workshops, resume writing groups, mock interviews and professional attire workshops. The BTC computer lab is open to all participants several hours per week to work on school assignments, search for jobs, write resume and/or improve their computer skills.
