Description: After 90 years of serving diverse young people from hard-pressed communities throughout the Greater New York area, Vacamas underwent a full organizational review and formed a more nimble youth agency with a refreshed name, brand, updated program model, and clear mission and vision for the future—we are now “Hands In 4 Youth.” A new website is under construction and will launch very soon. Please stay tuned . . .
