We are pleased to announce that we are 2016 recipients of a Citizens Committee for New York City Neighborhood Grant. Thank you so much CCNYC for supporting us and our work over the years! With this grant we will be able to continue programming like our Wednesday reading program but also support the newly expanded homework help on Wednesdays from 3-4 and do even more programming. Thank you to all our supporters and of course, the youth!
On Wednesday 4/27 the reading program students talked about their dreams for the future. This is in anticipation of our next book! From NFL to NYPD, they’re dreaming big. So proud of them!
