B.U.I.L.D Staten Island is a YouthBuild USA modeled program that provides a pathway for unemployed, out-of-work youth between the ages of 16 to 24, an opportunity to reclaim their education, gain the skills they need for employment, and become leaders in rebuilding and shaping their communities. Our program brings in top leadership development specialists and vocational trainers that are focused on incorporating real world experiences to help transform young lives.


The Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 and was formed for the purpose of promoting Tappen Park as a viable venue for positive community arts, cultural, and educational programs and events.

Our vision is to promote responsible economic development along the Bay Street Corridor that encourage public and private partnerships through programs and events that will make a positive impact on the businesses, residents, and community assets in Staten Island’s North Shore.
