For Council Member Cumbo’s First Summer Youth Resource Expo, I brought together 40 organizations that offer summer activities for New York City Youth.
“Disconnected youth are often at a higher risk of dropping out of school, unemployment, incarceration, and gang recruitment. The Fair provides expert counseling on a one-on-one basis with representatives from various organizations to help participants identify a pathway to immeasurable opportunities for personal, academic, and professional advancement to improve their quality of life”
From internships, to arts, to sports, to employment, there was no shortage of options for young people to explore. Among those options, Tropical Fete and Lotus Creations Academy performed with current students to show what their programs have to offer.
I was proud to put together this important event and bring needed information to Brooklyn youth while having a great time!
