Committee In Formation
We are very happy to announce that we have published our very first Annual Report for The Sylvia Center. See what we accomplished together in 2014 by clicking the link here. And if you’d like to request a hardcopy of the report, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This September, you’re invited to come try some of Brooklyn’s finest craft spirits at New York Distilling Co. in support of The Sylvia Center!
At this happy hour for a good cause, you’ll meet others who are passionate about making good, healthy food accessible to all. You’ll also hear from some of TSC’s seasoned chef instructors, who teach hundreds of young people and their families how to cook each year, and learn how you can get involved.
Proceeds from this event will support The Sylvia Center’s healthy cooking program for youth, teens, and families in the Williamsburg Community Center.
The mission of The Sylvia Center (TSC) is to inspire young people and their families to eat well–so that they may lead healthy and productive lives. TSC conducts food literacy programs in schools and New York City Housing Authority community centers, and at Katchkie Farm in upstate New York. In our programs, youth, teens, and families learn basic cooking techniques and the principles of healthy eating through hands-on experiences with fresh, whole foods.
To get involved with the Farm Team, a group of young professionals in support of The Sylvia Center, please email Erika Lesser, Development Director, at: email@example.com
On August 11, 2015, The Sylvia Center had the very exciting opportunity of ringing NASDAQ’s Closing Bell. Program Manager Whitney Reuling attended the ceremony and was joined by intern Makshya Tolbert, chef assistant (and former student) Chris Santos, and student teacher, Omou Barry, who is a participant of our TASC (The After School Corporation) program. The ceremony was broadcast live on major news outlets, including CNBC, Bloomberg and Fox Business. It was very memorable experience for the team! Check out the video below.
