New Image Youth Center says
Orlando is home to a place where dreams come true. Yet Orlando is also home to one of the 25 most dangerous neighborhoods in America. The Parramore neighborhood of Orlando is filled with violence, drugs, gangs, poverty and high crime rates; a world where hope is lost. The Parramore neighborhood is also home to around 2,000 children, 75% of whom live in poverty. Like most kids, those children are in school for part of the day, but the rest of the day they’re in an environment with seemingly insurmountable challenges for survival, not to mention challenges getting out of poverty.

New Image Youth Center serves as an oasis after school and during the summer in the Parramore neighborhood to roughly 70 children. The organization provides structure and love to each child, and is making a big difference in the lives of those kids. In the ten years of its existence, NIYC has had ZERO teen pregnancies, ZERO kids in the juvenile justice system, and is GRADUATING KIDS FROM COLLEGE. One New Image alumnus graduated this spring from Morehouse College with plans to obtain a joint Masters / PhD in Computer Science.

And YOU can make a difference. After all, it’s AS a community that we’ll solve the problems faced BY our community. YOU are invited to be a part of the New Image Youth Center Strategic Development Committee to learn more about NIYC, meet some of the most inspirational people in our community and take part in the growth of this amazing organization. EVERYONE has something to offer, whether it’s to help a child with school work, act as a mentor, or participate in community outreach events raising awareness to the best kept secret in Orlando. Come find how YOU can change the world!
