Hispanic Brotherhood will provide group educational sessions with staff and recruit speakers from outside entities such as the Department of Social Services, the Nassau County Youth Board, the Rockville Centre Police Department, the District Attorney's office, and local hospitals. Hispanic Brotherhood has an ongoing relationship with area school districts, from which we can also recruit counselors. The effectiveness of the educational sessions will be measured through the use of pre and post participation surveys and feedback from participants. Currently Hispanic Brotherhood provides transportation for students from the Rockville Centre and Oceanside School Districts as well as from one Baldwin school. This will facilitate participation of students from these districts. NCA/NCF
