All Stars Project of New Jersey
Since the All Stars Project launched the award-winning Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids in 2006, it has emerged as one of the country’s leading police-community relations programs – and the only program that focuses at a national level on culture-change and that uses a performance approach to build trust and new relationships between young people and police officers.
As interest in Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids continues to grow in New York, Newark and nationally, so has the need to expand the group of Cops & Kids workshop facilitators, which is why we are reaching out to All Stars friends and supporters like you.
We hope you will consider applying to be trained as a Cops & Kids workshop facilitator and are interested in learning an innovative new approach to transforming the relationship of police officers and young people from our inner-city communities.
If accepted into the program, you’ll take part in a highly interactive training environment where participants develop a solid foundation in the All Stars’ innovative performance-based approach and learn the practical skills needed to effectively lead Cops & Kids workshops. The training program is rigorous, hands-on and consists of role-playing, lectures, group discussion and community immersion.
Candidates who are accepted will participate in a 6-month training program currently planned from July through December 2019.
Completed applications are due by June 18, 2019.
