As you may already know, NYC has cut all funding for Summer Camp and Summer Youth Employment.  These cuts will have devastating impacts on our community and the thousands of youth and families who rely on them to get back to work, stabilize their family incomes, and stem months of learning loss and disengagement.  


St. Nick's Alliance is part of an evolving city-wide advocacy campaign to restore these summer camps and youth employment, even if social distancing remains in place.  The Mayor, City Council, NYS legislature, and US senators and congress must ensure that NYC families have the summer programs needed to recover from this unprecedented crisis. 


We need your help today to create the public outcry necessary to restore summer camp and summer youth employment. Please email or call your local, state, or federal elected officials.  Tell our public officials that;  

Summer camp and youth employment/career ready enable families to go back to work.  
Summer camp and youth employment/career ready will help the children, young people, and families in communities hardest hit by economic hardship.
CBOs stand ready to carry out creative solutions to support young people and their families through the summer. 
Call to action

Moving forward, we will also have sign-on letters, a social media campaign, and other strategies for you to join.  We will keep you updated.


Thank you for joining us in this fight.  Together, we can achieve positive results.


Best,
