YANA, which stands for “You Are Never Alone,” is a community resource center devastated by Sandy which reemerged as a relief hub before a gut renovation was completed with an eye towards green technology and sustainability.
Our mission is to help job-seekers develop their employability, to bring employment opportunities to the community with an emphasis on sustainable technologies, and to engage Rockaway in resident-led community improvement initiatives that are sustainable in all aspects of life.
Our programs include:
- Career Skill Workshops
- Educational Workshops
- Arts Programs
