We love our community partners! Fourth and fifth graders in the 4th Family morning mentoring program at Giffen Elementary ate breakfast together Tuesday before diving into their work of the day.

4th Family is at Giffen five mornings a week. Each morning after breakfast, mentors help prepare students for the school day. Every day features a new lesson on character building, and there’s often a guest speaker.

The Giffen students will join Schuyler Achievement Academy’s 4th Family students to take part in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade and other festivities Monday at the Empire State Plaza.

#ItTakesACommunity

ANNOUNCEMENT: In the culmination of the first year of the Corner Canvas program, three "moveable" murals will be installed on vacant properties provided by the Albany County Land Bank Corporation. Each mural was created by participating neighborhood students, mentored by artist Eugene O’Neill, to combine positivity and their creative expression. One of the young artists, Darielys, Grade: 8 Age: 14, shares her insight, “I believe that this program will add to better our community and I’m glad to be a part of it.”

This FRIDAY, May 10 the murals will be installed to their locations. The very next day, May 11, the young artists will add final touches to the pieces. For more information on locations and to see photos from the program visit: http://albanycentergallery.org/events/corner-canvas

General information

Society has many issues that need to be rectified in order for the world to see substantial change. The three issues that we are pinpointing pertain to: the lack of concern with youth development in urban communities, the need for drastic improvements in our public school system and accountability within our communities from all groups and members. A primary concern in our urban communities relates to the household structures (or the lack there of) that the youth are exposed to. Many are also subjected to seeing major crime, gang and drug activity in their neighborhoods, at a young and impressionable age. With these uncontrollable living situations, it is extremely difficult to save all of the youth from personal destruction without the specific developmental arenas, activities, and venues to deter them from the pitfalls of their ecological ills. Collaborating with the board of education in hopes of assisting the public school system, is a focal point of ours and is also vital to the survival of our urban communities and families. The current public school system nationally is under-funded, under-staffed, and if in operation, there is a limited array of after school activities that encourage students to join or be involved in productive activities. We feel we have comprised a compilation of various innovative programs and events that will re-capture the interest of the inner-city. The way that we plan to combat the mediocrity that exists in our communities is to first change the mindset of people. Our programs and events will help us to build a strong rapport with members of the community. Another essential piece of our agenda is assisting adults in achieving their desired personal and occupational endeavours. We have planned enrichment programs that will allow members of the community to find jobs in various areas of interest as well as personal development. We will work closely with corporations and different organizations with the intentions of creating job-shadowing opportunities for the individuals in our programs. We also plan to have wellness programs and events to assist with mental and physical health. It is our desire to be able to work with all the people in the community who are from various backgrounds and different age groups. By encompassing all of these different community outreach programs/events, we believe that our organization will have a major impact on the inner-city, and will ultimately bring a change in the mentality of the people in our society, that is long overdue.
