The Young Professionals Board of Scotiabank welcomed student-athletes from Youth INC Partner South Bronx United to their office where they introduced the youth to their work and challenged them to a friendly game of kickball.
Youth INC and nonprofit partner Change for Kids engaged over 220 RBC summer interns in meaningful volunteer activities at P.S. 142, an under-resourced elementary school on the Lower East Side. Interns participated in activities including Hour of Code, an interactive, one-hour introduction to computer science, Graduating into Greatness, a series of workshops designed to prepare scholars for the middle school application process, and Build-a-Book, a hands-on literacy activity that invited volunteers to share their joy of reading by helping students create their very own personalized books.
On April 18, 2018, Youth INC co-hosted the second annual State of Youth Development symposium: Advancing Impact, Justice and Hope, a convening on current policies, trends, challenges, and opportunities impacting the field of youth development in NYC.
