Family Service of Westchester, Inc.
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
FSW proposes to support an ACFL program that serves in high needs communities in Westchester County: Yonkers, White Plains, Port Chester and New Rochelle. Each district encompasses large clusters of poverty and youth identified as at-risk in such areas as low performances in reading and in other areas of academic achievement, as well as insufficient social skills. The program connects youth with caring adults: mentors who can support their educational and emotional development.
