For the past seven years, Restoration's youth educational programs have helped some 200 youth from Bed Stuy and neighboring communities to graduate high school, enter post secondary education, vocational training programs, and obtain employment. On Tuesday, December 18, we ushered in the holidays with our current high school seniors and alumni: college students, college graduates, as well as first year graduate students. Youth had an opportunity to share experiences, provide encouragement, discuss careers and take advantage of the array of Restoration services as they matriculate in college and for some begin graduate studies. Reunions are arranged twice a year in the winter and summer. If you are a former participant of any Restoration educational youth program contact Mr. Dody at 718-636-6947 or Ms. Hamit at ex.6937 to update us on your successes and learn about upcoming events and services available to you.
