BACK TO SCHOOL WITH HELP FROM THE COMMUNITY!!!
I’m requesting your partnership and assistance in securing school supplies for in-need students in the 35th Council District for the 2012-2013 school year.
It is our duty to invest in our children’s future and what better way to invest than to make sure our young people are equipped and prepared with the tools they need to learn. Donations of pens, pencils, paper, backpacks, notebooks, calculators, protractors, crayons, paint, construction paper, and whatever else you deem necessary for these students would be greatly appreciated. Collection of these items will be distributed at an event in September in time for the 2012-2013 school year.
If you require any further information, please feel free to contact (718) 260-9191. I look forward to working with you for the betterment of our children and communities. Thanking you in advance for your consideration and your cooperation.

SUMMER INTERNSHIPS NEEDED
Over the course of the last two years, the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center has formed a cadre of approximately twenty youth living in western Crown Heights. The group is called Y.O. S.O.S. – Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets
Sick and tired of the violence that their peers engage in toward themselves and adults, they have received extensive training in how they (as youth) can play roles in stemming potentially violent situations before they get out of control.
An idea of the work they have been doing can be found by looking at their Facebook page
As a “perk” for doing this work, we are going to try to help them find summer jobs and internships. We want every youth to get a chance to interview for a placement by the time school gets out. We are looking for the types of internships where the communication and problem solving skills that they have developed can be utilized. We are looking for the types of internships where these kids can continue to grow.
Please contact Ruby-Beth Buitekant: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Summer Camp at Goodwill Beacon 265 is now accepting applications.
The summer camp program will run between July 9, 2012 to August 24, 2012 from 8:00am to 6:00pm Monday thru Friday.
This year they are focusing on middle school age children.
The child must be entering the 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in September 2012 to be considered a middle school child. However, if the middle school child has a younger sibling who is considered an elementary school age child (at least 6 years old), they will accept both applications. Please note that elementary school age applicants will be placed on a waiting list.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact

THE 5th ANNUAL ABOUT TIME KIDS DAY
SPONSORED BY ABOUT TIME BOUTIQUE,
CROW HILL COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION AND FAM
Started in 2008, by Kevin Phillip of About Time Boutique (and The Candy Rush), Kids Day on Franklin Avenue is a fun filled day of laughter and fun, rides and games, cotton candy and prizes for the kids in our community, AND IT’S ALL FREE!!!
Watch the video from 2010
But, it does take money and a lot of hard work to pull it off.
And that’s where YOU come in.
Kevin, Garnett and Daylon (youth co-ordinator) need help with 2 things:
Fundraising and volunteers on the day of the event.
Franklin Avenue Merchants do their part in contributing to the event but a bulk of the money is raised through bake sales on Franklin Avenue run by the kids themselves.
- Will you commit to baking for the sale?
- Will you commit to a Saturday morning with the kids on Franklin Avenue monitoring the bake sale?
- Will you commit to volunteering at the event?
If so, please contact Garnett: email@example.com
And PLEASE support this incredible community event by buying from the bakes sale, Remember ALL money raised goes directly to the KIDS DAY, the rides, the food, the games & the prizes!!!
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Young Scholars Program was founded on the idea that if you give high-achieving students with financial need the guidance and resources necessary for them to excel during high school, college and beyond, their greatness will emerge. The Foundation works closely with recipients and their families to construct a tailored educational program that can include support for summer programs, distance learning courses, and music and art instruction.
Approximately 60 students are selected for the program each year. All Young Scholars have demonstrated excellence in academic endeavors and extracurricular activities, a strong will to succeed and financial need. For those entering the program, the average family income is approximately $25,000, and more than 90 percent have incomes under $60,000.
