2,107 students who attended one or more Van Cortlandt Adventures educational programs;
48 Bronx high school interns who worked and were paid (11 completed an accredited college course at CUNY Lehman College) in summer and school year internships, including Urban Eco-Teens and the Garden 2 Market Internship, and;
