Thank you to the Department of Youth & Community Development, Department of Education, all of our partner agencies, and all individuals who have helped to make Millennium Development’s OST programs successful over the years.
As a successful school year is coming to a close for our OST programs, we kindly ask that all parents take a few moments to thank those individuals who are directly responsible for advocating and providing OST programs for our children.
Please contact your local councilman by letter, stating your support for your child’s program. Please include your children’s site.
Unfortunately, we haven’t yet been assigned summer camp programs, so we are asking that you call 311 or visit Mayor de Blasio’s “Contact the Mayor” webpage here to share your concerns today. Please include your child’s site when you call 311 or visit the “Contact” page.

Millennium Development and Bergen Beach Youth Organization rang in the holiday season by participating in Operation Christmas Child, an international project that ships toys and supplies to not-as-fortunate children all over the world.
In total, Millennium Development and BBYO were able to collect 100 shoeboxes filled with gifts and supplies for many wonderful recipients.
This may have been the first and only gift that many of these children have received this past holiday season and we cannot extend enough gratitude to the individuals and families who donated valuable time and resources.

Marine Park Junior High School (MPJHS) Theater Students performed Disney’s “A Goofy Movie” for staff members, family, and friends. “A Goofy Movie,” the wacky tale of a father and son’s fishing trip which takes them across the country for some family bonding time, left the audience laughing and the cast happy with their efforts.
The production was coordinated by Millennium Development’s counselors under the guidance of the Out-of-School Time (OST) Directors.
