What We Are Doing
We provide educational programs that address issues affecting disadvantaged communities in New York City through awareness, education, media projects, the arts, and personal and community development activities.
Many of S4L programs are offered for youth, teens and seniors with workshop presentations and materials tailored to be developmentally appropriate for the participating age group. Handouts and pre- and post-surveys will be given to evaluate individual workshop sessions and the program’s effectiveness.
Our unique programs have proven to be successful in making a positive difference and improving the lives of those we serve. S4L has worked with students in New York City public schools in New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) in conjunction with NYCHA Residents Associations and New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD)
Realizing that visual stimulation is one of the most effective ways to communicate messages – particularly to youth – S4L fights for social change by developing supportive projects with creative campaigns: it infuses film and music with health awareness to warn people about the consequences of high-risk behavior and empower them to make decisions that will lead them to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
