About the Arts & Letters Reception

This important fundraiser supports our Y Afterschool Program, which provides more than 10,000 New York City public school children in all five boroughs with extended learning opportunities in fundamental literacy skills and the arts, five days a week. Y Afterschool not only helps children academically, but also builds the social and emotional skills they need to succeed in school and in life.
