Youth from PS111 decorate for Mardis Gras. This is part of the Kenneth Cole Productions/Mentoring USA (MUSA) partnership designed to provide one-on-one mentoring to young people in New York City. MUSA's Young Professional Advisory Board Co-Chairman, Amanda Cole, leads the group in this fun and engaging activity. Kenneth Cole Productions has been involved with MUSA for 14 years.
MUSA founder Matilda Raffa Cuomo visits @MentoringItalia and is greeted by children of the program. Founded in 1998, Sergio Cuomo serves as Mentoring USA/Italia president. Over the twelve years of activity more than 8,000 young Italians, working with as many volunteer Mentors, have benefited from the one-to-one method which is the basis of the educative intervention.
