Spring Break Alternative

On March 13th, a group of students from George Washington University arrived to spend their Alternative Spring Break volunteering with New Alternatives.  They participated in Life Skills group Sunday evening, took the youth to the Museum of Natural History on Monday, collaborated with the youth on a mural-sized artwork on Tuesday, and went with the youth to the Brooklyn Aquarium on Thursday.

Mission Statement

Created in 2008, the mission of New Alternatives is to increase the self-sufficiency of homeless LGBT youth and to enable them to transition out of the shelter system and into stable adult lives. We do this by providing case management, education services, life skills training, community-building recreational activities, opportunities for self-expression, and support services for HIV+ youth. Our guiding principles are those of harm reduction, youth development, and empowerment.
