Assistant Director of Intervention
Cesare Robinson is the Assistant Director of Intervention (Bronx Office). Before joining Common Justice, she was a program director at the Youth Shelter Program of Westchester, a residential alternative to incarceration program for young men. During this time, Cesare had the opportunity to interface with all the young men who chose to participate in the program, which provided year-round schooling, cultural/ community immersion, as well as family reunification. Cesare completed her Master of Social Work and LMSW exam during this time.
Cesare was born and raised in New York City, however she briefly left to complete her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Virginia State University. Immediately after the completion of her degree, Cesare began to work in the social service field where she immediately realized the service disparities and the representation of people of color in all the systems that she interfaced with. This work was the beginning of her trajectory as a change agent and advocate for those who are underrepresented.
