NCC Youth Star In Video Shoot

Nicholas Onaiwu interview

Rakiyah Grove interview

New Community’s Youth Services Department saw lights, camera and action on a recent Thursday afternoon when a film crew visited the Neighborhood Center on Hayes Street to shoot a promotional video for Morgan Stanley’s Healthy Newark initiative. The investment firm had identified Newark as the third location for its Healthy Cities program, which promotes health and wellness through a philanthropic effort that connects nonprofits, schools and hospitals. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, which provides after-school snacks to NCC Youth Services as well as a monthly delivery of food to the NCC Emergency Food Pantry at 220 Bruce St., is the lead Healthy Newark partner. The film crew filmed on the same day that children from the after school program received services from KinderSmile Foundation, a nonprofit mobile dental program that offers free dental services to underprivileged children. Being interviewed, on top, is Nicholas Onaiwu and on bottom, Rakiyah Grove.
