Alas, The year is coming to an end. The Young Heroes program graduated over 100 Young Heroes at PS 57, in East Harlem, two weeks ago. The Auditorium was packed with an astounding number of over 300 people who came out to support the Young Heroes as they graduated from our program. Some of our students graduated having completed as many as 140 community service hours. The ceremony was beautiful. We had a parent speaker from the Bronx, a Young Heroe keynote speaker, we awarded the Young Heroe of the Year awards to two outstanding young people, and we all relaxed afterward with a huge potluck supper.
The Young Heroes teams are staying busy wraping up the program and leaving a strong legacy for future teams so that they may carry on a strong program.
The Young Heroe of the year awardees will be going up to New Hampshire with the corps for the week of CYZYGY.
