TDN Scholarship’s Roadmap: Implementation in Northern and Central Brooklyn

Brooklyn, New York (Jan. 10, 2017) – Our Founder Ariel Rojas had a very fruitful 2-hr meeting with Deputy Borough President Diana Reyna and her team members Latino Community Affairs Coordinator Yamilky Crisostomo and Deputy Policy Director Jeff Lowell. They discussed the roadmap of implementing Transdiaspora Network’s Cross-cultural Youth Exchange Scholarship in Northern Brooklyn as well as improving our organization’s prevention and wellness groundbreaking model. Message from our founder: “Yep, feeling inspired! In this time of great uncertainty and concern for our communities, so many of our neighbors as well as elected officials are working together to help make Brooklyn a fair and just place for all, especially young people, who call it home.”

Brooklyn, New York (March 9, 2017) – Our Founder Ariel Rojas officially signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Medgar Evers College Liberty Partnership Program. This agreement will present Transdiaspora Network as an official partner of this prestigious institution, and will allow our organization to benefit from their 2017-2022 funding cycle. After 10 years of hard work and many challenges, Transdiaspora Network is here to stay; we’re not walking away from our at-risk young people neither are we abandoning our commitment to improve the well being of Brooklyn’s underprivileged local communities. For now on, Transdiaspora Network will have a distinctive presence in Central Brooklyn by implementing our Cross-cultural Youth Exchange Scholarship, enhancing their educational health programs and enlisting a significant group of talented high school/college students as well as local young raising stars in our BOLD Initiative Internship program.
