Our Programs

NCC provides extensive programs and services to Yonkers and the Lower Hudson Valley region in New York, South New Jersey and abroad. We address many social ills and work tirelessly to empower our children and families to live their best lives in a safe and healthy manner.

Yonkers My Brother's Keeper (MBK)

The Yonkers Basics campaign aims to shrink the “achievement gap” starting with the very young. Yonkers Basics is inspired by the fact that 80% of brain development happens in the first three years of life.

President Obama’s initiative that focuses on six milestones: getting a healthy start and entering school ready to learn ; reading at grade level by the third grade; ensuring all the youth graduate from high school; ensuring all youth complete post-secondary education or training; ensuring all youth out of school are employed; ensuring all youth remain safe from violent crime.

GATEWAY TO A HEALTHY YONKERS

This new initiative seeks to build on the successes of the past and allows NCC to be more intentional and strategic in creating policies, systems and environmental changes that will produce a greater and more sustainable impact on the health and nutrition habits of our community.
