2019 A Year of Growth

The Fashion Foundation, a sponsor of What About The Children, Inc., helped build a library for PS 155 filling it with over $10,000 worth of brand new books. We attended the dedication ceremony in March.

In conjunction with The Brooklyn Museum, What About The Children, Inc. arranged a private tour of the special exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power for a select group of middle school students.

As part of the College Access For All program, we conducted 4 college tours - Iona College, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Mercy College and Bard College at Simon’s Rock - for middle school students.

What About The Children, Inc., courtesy of The Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood Alliance (DBNA), hosted a family outing at the Nassau Coliseum - The Longines Masters of New York, a top ranked equestrian competition.

We organized and escorted a group of students to view the screening of “Tell Them We Are Rising: The History of Black Colleges and Universities” at the Weeksville Heritage Center.

Moriah Cody, a member of our Youth Advisory Board and part of the Dorill Initiative, organized a pop-up art show series called Fade to Black. What About The Children, Inc. hosted a group of students to the event.
