Who are the target students?​ JTC participants demonstrate need through their history of conviction, incarceration, or justice involvement. The Foundational program requires a basic understanding of navigating computers and technology but prior programming experience is not required. Participants in the Exploring Tech Career Pathways program are expected to be fluent in the tools and software common to non-technical roles in the corporate workplace. Flagship participants are required to pass a technical assessment prior to admission in the program.

JTC works with partners to provide laptops for participants in our Flagship Software Engineering and Data Analytics programs who do not own them, as laptops and/or home computers are required. Remote attendance is available for all our programs for students residing outside of the NYC area.

JTC Alumni

"I wish employers knew the breakdown of how people become incarcerated, the stories behind the record, and to not place judgments on the records themselves. Every person has a story and I would encourage employers to hear us out before passing judgment."

"I think Justice Through Code will help me gain some new tools that will supplement my math degree. I feel like these tools (along with JTC's networking connections) will help me find the opportunity to gain a career not just a job. In this way, my life out of prison can be less a struggle and more of an endeavor."

"Incarceration impacted my development years because I was incarcerated at 20 years old and came home at almost 40 years old. That is the time frame where I would have been establishing myself professionally and building a family."
