Committed to Enriching the Lives of Our Youth
SIDEINCAN Organization, an initiative of Haitian immigrants and first generation Haitian-Americans, is on a mission to promote the establishment of a peaceful climate based on the knowledge of Haitian culture and support spaces that strengthen youth leadership. We provide technical support to vulnerable families of the Haitian community in addition to other communities in the State of New York.
It is our goal to promote the development of adapted and technical support strategies for families in need. Our efforts include assisted training, exchange and sharing workshops, individual coaching, formation of parent groups, field trips, community groups, and bilateral meetings.
