New American Youth Engagement Project NAYEP
This program is designed exclusively for New American youth with the objective of improving the quality of youth lives by engaging them in meaningful activities. This helps reduce youth dislocation, prevent their involvement in risky behavior, reduce long-term economic burden on city resources, and help develop a skillful workforce. This year’s cycle began with 45 participants, and last year 30 students graduated from this program.
This project includes organizing events, seasonal sports, discussion of career prospects, assistance in college preparation, and academic and tutorial activities during non-school hours. This project focuses on giving teenagers and young adults the chance to build skills, exercise leadership, form relationships with caring adults, and help their communities.
