Our Teen Center Youth Visit Vassar and SUNY Purchase!
On Wednesday October 21st, staff from our Edgies Teen Center (Boys & Girls Club of America clubhouse) took 30 our our teens to visit the campuses of Vassar and SUNY Purchase! Our youth were able to meet up with alumni from our programs at each school and hear their amazing journeys since leaving Edgies. The trip was a wonderful experience for all and has our teens excited about pursuing a college experience of their own. Please enjoy photos from the trip below.
More about our College Prep Program
100% of our College Prep students who applied to college are accepted to at least one of the schools to which they submitted an application. Most are the first in their families to go to college. These are just some of the results we have been achieving each year since the creation of this important program in 2007.
Now a critical component of our Teen Program at Manny Cantor Center on the Lower East Side, the Samuel B. Rosenblatt College Prep Program is helping youth who grow up challenging circumstances overcome those factors that inhibits their path to success.
