Event Details

Fifty years ago, the Economic Opportunity Act was passed, launching the War on Poverty. Join DYCD as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Act.  This Symposium will highlight DYCD’s anti-poverty strategies and programs funded by DYCD via federal Community Services Block Grant funding.  Participate in one of three tracks throughout the day focusing on best practices in Youth, Adult, or Immigrant Services. Build skills and make new linkages by accessing workshops and resources.

Event partners include the New York State Community Action Association (NYSCAA), the New York State Department of State, HealthFirst, Modells, and the New York Law School. The Symposium represents New York City’s role as part of NYSCAA’s statewide public education and outreach effort to confront myths and misconceptions about poverty by highlighting successful anti-poverty programs and services provided by Community Action across New York State.

Space is limited – so register early. You may register up to four persons from your organization. Please indicate your panel discussion and workshop preferences.
