The Young Debaters Program is celebrating it's fourth year of implementation in elementary and middle schools throughout Queens and Brooklyn. In addition, this year marks the first year of implementation in a Queens High School.
Richard Celestin Consulting Group, LLC was created in 2009 with the specific purpose of developing and implementing skill development and youth empowerment programs in elementary and middle schools with high populations of at-risk juveniles.
With increasing school drop-out and incarceration rates of minority youth, Richard Celestin Consulting Group has specifically designed programs to work directly with youth prior to their involvement in the juvenile or criminal justice system or with first-time offenders. Working with elementary and middle school youth on career development and future planning, along with the necessary skills to be effective and successful students, are proven methods of maintaining school retention rates and ultimately increasing graduation rates.
Programs offered under the LLC include The Young Debaters Program, Consequential Thinking Workshops, Youth Empowerment Workshops, Anger Management Workshops, and Parent Empowerment Workshops. In addition, public speaking engagements, including graduations, are also offered.
