SCO to Launch “Recovery Lab” Youth Workshop

September 28, 2020 / SCO News

SCO Family of Services is excited to launch a new youth development program for middle and high school students. Recovery Lab Youth Workshop brings 50 participants, ages 12-18, from Brooklyn and Queens together twice a week for remote activities. The program will support participants’ social-emotional and leadership skills development while laying the foundation for academic success through mentoring, project-based learning, and career and education planning. This six-week program will focus on:

  • Mentoring
  • Education
  • Vocational guidance
  • Social justice
  • Career readiness
  • Community projects

Recovery Lab Youth Workshop will feature structured learning through at-home participation. Youth will attend hour-long Zoom meetings each week.

Every participant will receive a laptop, a weekly stipend, and transportation along with other program perks.

Recovery Lab is made possible through a grant from the Robin Hood Foundation.
