Join Us for Our Sixth Annual Teen Fair!

Join us TOMORROW, August 28th, for our 6th Annual Teen Fair from 1:00 to 4:00 pm on East 104th Street, between Lexington and 3rd Avenues. The annual event, sponsored by Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito helps connect our young people with services in the community as they prepare to go back to school.

Stop by and spend an afternoon with us! There will be free food for attendees, live music and dance performances by young people, and a backpack giveaway generously sponsored by Kars 4 Kids. Throughout the afternoon, local organizations will set up tables to recruit teens to take part in their programs. Don’t miss it!!

The event is co-sponsored by the El Barrio/East Harlem Youth Violence Task Force, the Office of Senator Jose M. Serrano, the Office of Assemblyman Robert J. Rodriguez and Manhattan Community Board 11.

  1. I was once a violent youth and I believe this program can be very beneficial for the teens of N.Y.C. I believe a new method to battle gun violence is through the mind of the individual.
    Gun laws cannot override the mentality of a person, only fear can accomplish such.
    If we can change the mindset of the individual, then we will have a reduction in gun violence.
    Sadly, my condolences go to all who lost a loved one to the cycle of gun violence.
