DYCD Gets $100K Gift for New OST Initiative PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 23 November 2009 03:04

American Eagle Outfitters celebrated the opening of their new 25,000-square-foot flagship store in Times Square last week with a $100,000 gift to support overnight college trips for high school students enrolled in afterschool programs administered by the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development.  The trips will motivate students to pursue higher education.

 

The gift supports DYCD’s three-year commitment to focus resources on 33 Out of School Time (OST) high school programs that feature programming designed to improve the promotion rates of ninth graders. More than 1,500 ninth-graders from across the five boroughs will be engaged in afterschool programs that offer academic enrichment, creative arts, guidance counseling and college prep.  This initiative aims to support those ninth graders by connecting them with Counselor Advocates who can connect them to resources and help them deal with social and emotional issues.

 

Taking part in the program were American Eagle Outfitters CEO Jim O’Donnell; New York City Deputy Mayor for Education and Community Development Dennis Walcott; Commissioner of the Department of Youth and Community Development Jeanne Mullgrav.
