Credible Messenger Mentoring is a program where youths in the juvenile justice system are mentored by individuals from similar backgrounds, especially those who were themselves system-involved, to help the youths transform their lives. The CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies (SLU) partners with the Department of Probation’s Credible Messenger Justice Center to enroll eligible Credible Messengers in the Community Leadership Certificate Program (undergraduate or graduate level). For participants in this program, the application fee is waived and tuition is paid by the Credible Messenger Justice Center.
