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.
  • "I was greatly impressed with everything I saw. The concepts are exciting, the people truly dedicated."
