Many wonderful people make Young New Yorkers possible. Under#YNYbecause, different members of our community share why our programs are important to them, in their own words.
Dominique Howard: Program Teacher #YNYbecause art is powerful. #YNYbecause young people are dynamic. #YNYbecause a combination of the two will transform the criminal justice system. Young New Yorkers is important because it provides a platform for the voices of a silent majority and educates them about the power of choice. #YNYbecause I have hope that, through art and dialogue, our participants will have greater access to their personal power, creating a better tomorrow for themselves and for their communities.
