The Youth Movement Center & Community Respite Program joined together and accompanied their youth to Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 2 for a group recreational roller-skating outing. The goal of this excursion was to get the kids out of the center; expose them to a new atmosphere and exciting activity.

There were a total of 19 staff and youth that experienced all of the fun and excitement. Once the day was done, we ate at the local Popeye’s and Subway sandwich restaurant.

This outdoor recreation was not only a great way to expose the youth to something fun but it was also a way to implement exercise and fitness into their lives.
