BCS Participates in National Night Out Events
|Bronx Youth Court Members with Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark at National Night Out|
Bronx Community Solutions had the great opportunity to participate in several National Night Out Events with our partners in the New York City Police Department. National Night Out is a 35 year tradition of bringing law enforcement and community members together to build connections and raise awareness on public safety issues. Each NYPD police precinct hosts a block party for their communities and this year our staff was able to participate in 3 separate events! Our community service crews supported the 44th Precinct by cleaning Mullaly Park and helping to prepare for their event. The crews also assisted the 41st Precinct by cleaning Longwood Avenue between Beck Street and Southern Blvd.
Bronx Community Solutions' Restorative Justice Team was able to partner with the NYPD's 43rd Precinct's block party that day too. This was the first time in which our Bronx Youth Court members had an opportunity to participate in a community event of this size. Our youth were able to participate by staffing our vendor table, handing out flyers, speaking to community members about Bronx Youth Court and helping out at the other vendor tables. They were also able to snag a picture with our very own District Attorney Darcel Clark!
We are always excited to collaborate with our law enforcement partners in this amazing event. Thanks and appreciation to all the community based organizations who also attend every year and take the time to make a positive impact in the community. It just keeps getting better!
