Lower East Side Youth Opportunity Hub

An exciting new program – exclusively for 13 to 24 year olds who live, work or attend school on the Lower East Side – opened its doors in October.

The Lower East Side Youth Opportunity Hub is all about success, support and community and offers the following services to young people:

  • Mental health support
  • Basketball, soccer, baseball and more
  • Fun trips and community events
