On December 31st, a group of CPC youth from New Utrecht High School's ACE Program and IS 220's Beacon Community Center, along with their counterparts from other community-based organizations, were invited to watch the New Year's Eve ball drop in Times Square by the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development and the Police Athletic League.
"This is an amazing group of young kids who are excelling in school so the Mayor and I, along with the Police Commissioner decide to give them a real treat and bring them here to see the ball drop," said Keith Howard, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development.
"I would have never come here by myself or my family without this opportunity from the NYPD, and the Department of Youth and Community Development, "said Michelle, one of the program participants.
