Andrew Glover Youth Program 2015

The Andrew Glover Youth Program opened a new center for the kids in East Harlem on 130th St. The front room has a mural of NYC that became our background. I have been photographing for AGYP for many years. This program is so needed for the youth of NYC. Kids make mistakes and shouldn’t have to pay for those mistakes for their whole life. These are good kids who did something that got them in trouble with the law. AGYP offers counseling, tutoring and support to their clients instead of incarceration. AGYP works directly with the courts is offering an alternative to jail. I enjoy my time with these kids and it makes me feel good that my portraits can help raise awareness and funding for an amazing program. To find out more about AGYP go to their website.
