Purelements
Purelements uses the performing arts to educate students academically, socially, and emotionally. They empower students to live healthy, creative, and balanced lifestyles; to increase self-awareness and cultural appreciation; and to break down barriers of social ignorance by bridging gaps between diverse communities through arts education.

Our arts-immersion program led by Purelements' artists-in-residence is customized to meet the needs of our students and our school-wide teaching goals of Literacy, Ethics, and Design (LEAD).  Each semester, students choose to participate in chorus/music production, theatre, African dance, or graffiti art class. In their class they work on creating a mid-term and final showcase that highlights a student-created theme related to our teaching goals.

United Black Men of Queens County
The United Black Men of Queens is dedicated to serving at-risk youth to bring out the best in them and to foster positive growth for them and the community they live in.
