NYEP is an organization that does exactly what it says it does. If you look at what they put out into the community - what they say when they speak in public, how they represent themselves, what they put on their website and on Facebook - and then you go and visit the site, you can see that they are the real deal and they are actually even more impressive than they make themselves out to be. A lot of young people you come in contact with - especially those in transition - seem unhappy, disrespectful, and like they don't care and have no direction, but when you meet the girls at the NYEP program, they are so vibrant and happy and you can tell how hard they are working on themselves and how proud they are to be part of the program. They volunteer, they help each other, and they have respect for themselves and others. They are like a family. The staff is awesome and you can tell they really care about what they do.
