AGYP's Goals

Keep kids out of prison - that's how AGYP stops New York City crime. Our goals:

  • Make the Lower East Side and East Harlem safer for everyone.
  • Give the overloaded court system a reliable alternative to incarceration.
  • Intervene and reclaim young people from lives of crime.
  • "All the love, all the support, all the time, all the effort that Angel put into me, it worked. He never gave up on me. My number one dream is to give back, as much as I was given."
    - Elsie Flores, Youth Worker and Former Client
