Please watch the you tube video link below featuring amazing South Bronx Youth helping to feed 400 families daily while cultivating minds and harvesting hope and awareness across the Bronx. This program was initially started with 17 students who had 40% daily attendance and in the process, achieved 93% daily attendance and 100% graduation rates and has taken off across the Borough and NYC. Please help us celebrate and validate the ability to move youth from being "apart from" everything to becoming "a part of" the local solution!
Please feel free to forward/post/imbed the video to any and all sites/pages/spaces so we can spread awareness and create coalition. For those of you who tweet on Twitter, please pass on as well.
