Yendor Productions

Yendor Productions was founded in 2003 to meet the challenges for the underserved artists and community. Yendor Productions produced its first arts event with local Newark artist Jerry Gant, Hassan Hamilton, and Yucef Mayes at NJPAC. Yendor Productions has developed and facilitated workshops for Plainfield Public Schools under the direction of Laura Fatal, Director of Visual and Performing Arts. The Turrell Foundation in 2005 and 2006 funded the “I Have a Dream” (IHAD) program in Plainfield, NJ for Yendor Productions to produce a documentary on IHAD and YendorArts filmmaking classes. Yendor developed and implemented in 2005 a Rites of Passage program for Children’s Aid in its partnership with The Artist Collective for Social Change which is entering into its third year.

YouthBuild Newark

YouthBuild Newark (YBN) is an education-focused, youth and community development agency that supports the achievement of 16 to 24 year old young adults who are academically under-skilled, under-employed, and/or have been involved with the criminal justice system. Our mission is to harness the intelligence and positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their communities and their lives. Through flexible and personalized programming and supports, we help students develop the educational competencies, workforce skills, and socio-emotional wellness needed to realize their personal and professional goals.

With a decade of expertise, YBN has transitioned from functioning solely as a direct service youth agency to a teaching organization committed to impacting the youth development and alternative education fields in increasingly sustainable and innovative ways.
