What we aim to solve New!

We seek to give at-risk youth every opportunity for future success so that their opportunities are as unlimited as those who find themselves in better circumstances. The signature programs of the Youth Internship Program and College Directions Program help youth figure out who they are, what they would like to become and how to get there. In addition to our services for teens, we offer high quality educational enrichment programming from pre-K through twelfth grade, health affirming activities for the greater community and support for homebound older adults.

RNH is assuming the leadership of another local nonprofit as a subsidiary corporation. With a commitment to quality equal to that of RNH, the subsidiary will be able to partner with us as we plan to attain even higher levels of service through sharing best practices. We will also have a full continuum of care for the entire service area from 230th Street to 263rd street in the northwest Bronx.

RNH hires professional youth development staff with the skills necessary to help youth assess career paths and explore options for higher education. Most youth we serve will be the first in their family to attend college. For the expansion of RNH, we will be conducting surveys and focus groups to assess what is working and identify potential opportunities.

The Executive Director has 25 years experience as a nonprofit leader and previous experience in general management. A Director of Program and Operations has been hired who also has attained "excellent" ratings on program evaluations and, like the Executive Director, has an MBA and uses business principles in program development. The Deputy Director of Youth Services has over 25 years experience working with you and possesses a B.S. in Community Health Education and an M.S. in Health Services Administration. The Deputy Director of Children's Services is a certified teacher with close to 20 years of experience and possesses a Master's Degree in Education Administration from Bank Street.

RNH consistently evaluates programs against metrics used in the particular field. We believe in participatory evaluation and include children, youth, parents and seniors in our assessments. Continued demand and modest growth will be indicators that we are heading in the right direction.

Over 93% of our Youth Interns have proceeded on to college from our program. In the most recent graduating year, all ten graduates are enrolled in college and they also received many different scholarships for support. For the new partnership, we are in progress of hiring the staff necessary to join forces and have gone through the legal process of creating a parent-subsidiary. We have attended each others' staff meetings and have met with key public and private funders to inform them of the process and learn from their collective experiences.
