Generation X-cel

Welcome to Generation Xcel, a holistic youth outreach program based in the Jacob Riis Houses in Manhattan's Lower East Side.

Founded in 1996 by 13 local teens and staffed primarily by volunteers, Xcel now serves hundreds of children a year through after school education, summer programs, community outreach efforts, and more.

Xcel's "by youth for youth" strategy - empower young people to create hope for their peers by providing viable alternatives to the streets - has been featured on local and national media and has been praised by community leaders, parents, and public officials as varied as Mayor Giuliani and Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY).
