P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. recognizes the urgent need to help develop the academic and social skills of children residing in run-down buildings. Today we train, educate and inspire youth to fulfill their potential.
P.A.’L.A.N.T.E.’s Stand and Deliver program is a prevention and intervention youth empowerment program that gives youths, ages 15 to 23, in Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood a role in combating homelessness, while gaining marketable skills, and forging positive relationships between community members.
The program is a, peer-led, hands on, yearlong out-of-school program located in Harlem that runs all year round during the summer from 11 : 00 AM -5 : 00 PM; spring, fall and winter after school from 3 : 30 PM -7 : 00 PM located in Harlem. As of 2019, PA’LANTE has provided internship opportunities to 347 young individuals.
STAND & DELIVER
Our interns work in a professional office setting where they learn marketing, segmentation, tenant advocacy and most importantly, they engage in community service.
P.A.'L.A.N.T.E. delivers its annual internship and mentoring program by developing a customized curriculum and conducts one-on-one assessments to help each participant map their educational goals and ambitions and match them with mentors in the Not-for-Profit and private sectors.
