TLNYC takes a holistic approach to youth and community development as we foster environments dedicated to helping the individuals we serve grow and thrive. TLNYC targets each enrolled Leader’s social, emotional, and psychological well-being to improve their academic and life outcomes. TLNYC embodies a “by any means necessary” approach to improve the holistic well-being of the youth, families, and communities we serve.
is to improve the mental, social, and economic conditions of the black and brown communities that we serve. The way to ensure these outcomes is by using foundational community values and methods that include integrating people from the direct communities we serve along with constant exposure to aspects of life that will inspire youth to thrive as a whole.
