Validus Prep, a small high school of about 350 students in the Claremont section of the Bronx, has been an over-achiever for years in the EATWISE program. They’ve done it again this year, with the introduction of an internship class, which has provided our EATWISE intern for this year. The class, led by Ms. Perez, aims to get teens active in their communities and professional settings. The school also partners with Outward Bound (their full school name is Validus Preparatory High School: An Expeditionary Learning School) which supports getting students out into the great outdoors. Their PSAL double dutch team is one of the best in the city! Over the years, Validus has supported all sorts of initiatives to help their students and families live healthier lives, including distributing fresh produce through the school. Many thanks to the school, Deyla, Moneia, Mariama, Zhamedra, Maria, and Chasity for their hard work over the years!
