Entertainment industry non-profit organization, Road Recovery invites you to join New York Clubhouse Concert Finales as part of the Trax Program this month in Oneonta, Amsterdam, Harlem, Elmira, Buffalo, Massena, Catskill, New York City, Queens, and the Bronx.
The 10 youth clubhouses within the Trax Program are a community-based, non-clinical setting for promoting long-term recovery through skill-building, recreation, education, wellness, evidence-based prevention programs, and other social activities.
The goal is to empower and inspire youth through self-expression and creativity while teaching invaluable life and coping skills.
Youth Clubhouses schedule Road Recovery Trax Programs during selected seasonal cycles with creative workshops and virtual peer support meetings culminating in live performance finales at the clubhouse.
Road Recovery launched a new Road Trax Program with their long-time program partners Graham Windham at the Harlem Beacon school – Mahalia Jackson PS/MS123. The NYC Department of Youth & Community Development supports the program.
The goal of the once-a-week after-school Road Trax Program is to empower these young school children to identify, express and amplify their voices in hopes of positively impacting themselves and a greater audience.
Following ten weeks of programming, a first-time Road Trax Program performance finale, presented by young participants and supported by Road Recovery’s Creative Staff Mentors, will be held at Graham Windham Harlem Beacon on December 12, 2022. “Road Recovery is a marvelous program that our youth have experienced,” said Graham Windham. “Their mentorship and guidance are springboards for youth’s success. The confidence of the children are at an all time high and I can’t wait to see them shine in their final performance.”
