Fall E-News from Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York

Back to the Future

Fall means back to school. For more than 2,600 children, it also means back to music lessons, play practice, homework help, and leadership training at 22 Episcopal Charities youth programs. Last month we visited each region of the diocese and interviewed students at Academic Enrichment  and  Skills Building  programs about their dreams for the future. Click here to see portraits of the children and read what they had to say. The story will be published in the upcoming Fall issue of the  Episcopal New Yorker .
