Launched in 2016, by current Executive Director, Olakunle Oladehin, EDN! NYC has been serving youth in the city and surrounding boroughs in partnership with local settlements, public schools, and community centers. We were excited to see the community come together to celebrate its first Day of Movement event in Manhattan.
When a site reaches out to us to host four workshops in a single day with over 250 kids, I gladly accept without hesitation. It has nothing to do with the confidence I have in myself; it stems from the belief I have in our talented team. I have the privilege of working with my mentors, peers, and friends in the dance scene. Our work doesn't happen without them, and it happens at a high level because of them.
The Peace Corner Youth Center is an organization located in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood, providing employment services, skill development, mentoring, tutoring, and a push in the right direction. EDN!C instructors Nadell Jackson & Chris Ayala create an enjoyable environment within the weekly classes.
