Community Justice Initiative, (CJI), is a restorative justice program for adults designed to help them resolve their court case without criminal conviction, while offering them the chance to give back to the community. Alpha Project offers participation in community service work as restitution or "payback" for a minor offense. Once enrolled in this program, individuals will complete 16 hours of community service and in exchange they will not have a criminal conviction on their record.
