Some of you that follow on social media may know that I was hired for this gang prevention program for teens in the Bronx as Assistant Program Director. The program offers time after-school with music lessons, tutors, art therapy, sports, media creation, cooking, etc. in order to help young people and their families have more resources and the space to engage in activities which could positively impact their lives. We also have had things like workshops for college, immigration/knowing your rights, etc.
The program was founded in remembrance of Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz when he was murdered outside of a Corner store bodega last summer in June of 2018.

Here is also a local news article about our program: http://bronx.news12.com/story/38534931/councilman-torres-announces-1m-in-anti-gang-funding
Please pray for us, these young people, and the entire community as we work to impact the Bronx and change lives by offering alternatives in this space.
