Awesome NPYP Thanksgiving Feast on 11/15 thanks to a great staff, volunteers, parents and kids, all of whom contributed to setting up, cooking, or cleaning up in some way.
We Won!!
The NPYP won “Best Youth Program in the Hudson Valley” in Hudson Valley Magazine for 2018.
The C.A.F.E. (Cafeteria Alternative For Everyone) has been a great success. We did a six week program three days a week at the old guidance space and small gym in the Spring. We had these spaces open for the lunch blocks and provided areas where kids could hang out with friends, listen to or play music, games, get help with homework or just relax. Due to it’s popularity we have been approved for the school year!
Tutoring!!! We tutor in up to 50 classes per day at the middle school. The largest such tutoring program in New York State!! We also tutor at the youth center after school! If you need help, we got it!!
Thanks To John Krasinski ‘s (remember Jim from “The Office”) movie (A Quiet Place), filming in New Paltz for contributing almost $2000 to our Van Fund. You can do the same by making a tax-deductible donation to the “NPYP van fund.” Check out the spooky trailer and see some familiar New Paltz locales: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9wE8dyzEJE
