With the new year approaching, we here at The Braddock Youth Project felt it a good time to look back and reflect on all that was accomplished, left unfinished, and will soon require attention! With your support over these past 6 years we have been put on a path to sustain the influence of The BYP for years to come. In June we had a 100% completion and graduation rate for our 7 senior school-year youth.
After all that we’ve accomplished this year it’s hard to pick a few “highlights”. Each seed planted, article written and child mentored helps strengthen our community and our youth and we thank you for supporting us over the last six years. Here are a few things we have done together this year:
Opening of the Braddock Community Cafe
The Braddock Community Cafe!
2nd Annual Collar Greens Cook-Off and Halloween Party
Created BYP Gear, our t-shirt and printing company
Teamed up with GASP and the PITT School of Public Health for air quality research
BYP youth, enjoying the city views, at the lab site adjacent to the
Hot Metal Bridge
Shot, edited and screened a documentary called “Voices of Braddock“
Monica and Dario Soto, BYP Alumni
There are so many things we would like to accomplish in the coming years and you can help us by making a secure donation today. Thanks and have a happy new years!
