Description: This project addresses several problems that face young people living in Flatbush and Crown Heights, two communities that are located in Central Brooklyn: gang activity, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy, youth unemployment, and poor school performance. According to a recent study by the Community Service Society, 16 percent of New York City's 16 through 24-year-olds are neither enrolled in school nor participating in the labor market." These nearly 170,000 young people are disconnected from the most important structural supports in our society: home, school, church/synagogue/mosque, workplace, etc. A disproportionate number of young people earmarked for disconnectedness reside in these two communities.
