    Red Hook Initiative, Summer Youth Employment

    On April 7th, NYC eliminated funding for the “Summer Youth Employment Program”, summer camps and public pools. Red Hook Initiative has offered summer jobs to youth for over 15 years, and we believe that investing in our next generation is the equitable, community-driven recovery that is most needed right now! • Red Hook Youth Speak #SaveSYEP #PayItForwardSYEP! #Repost @sg_.sheef ・・・ THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT SYEP IS CANCELLED AND WE NEED TO USE OUR VOICE. ‼️‼️#savesyep #payitfowardSyep the city has cut the Syep budget 🤦‍️ that money belongs to the YOUTH @rhookinitiative @menchaca

    Brooklyn COVID-19 Support Fund, Support for Local Nonprofit Service Organizations Providing Frontline Assistance

    We are proud to highlight the integral work of our #frontline community partner organizations supported by our Brooklyn COVID-19 Response Fund. In this new video, Center for Family Life in #SunsetPark (@scofamily) Director of Cooperative Development Program Maru Bautista shares how her organization is bringing support and relief directly to Brooklyn's immigrant communities, including many Brooklynites who are recently out of work and largely excluded from federal relief. Your donation to the Brooklyn COVID-19 Response Fund is powering a grassroots, community-led response that brings desperately needed aid to vulnerable neighbors across our borough. Give today at or follow the link in our bio. Special thanks to @sandenwolff for producing this video series.
