The Prospect Park Alliance (PPA) has worked in partnership with the community to provide places and programs that support the healthy development of at-risk youth. The Alliance has become a leader in developing school-based and other educational programs that engage inner city children with the natural environment while fostering positive emotional and psychological development. In the area of youth programs, experienced staff provides structured opportunities for teenagers to be partners in the Alliance's mission. Through training initiatives, volunteer work, employment, and special programming, participants develop lifelong leadership skills and learn to be a positive force in their communities. PPA works collaboratively to increase visitation and participation of residents from under-represented Brooklyn communities in Youth and Education programs. NCA/NCF
