YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME AT 1225
The 1225 Drop-in-center, a project of the Jewish Heritage center, is a state of the art, 3,000 sq. ft. facility located on 39th st, in the heart of Boro Park. At the drop in center young Chasidic adults can find a safe and warm environment regardless of how they look or behave. When youth walk into the doors of the drop in center they immediately feel like they belong. Through our array of services, listed below, they can find guidance leading to a healthier, more productive and fulfilling life.
The mission of 1225 is to enhance the physical, emotional and spiritual development of disenfranchised Chassidisha Youth. We provide safe environments where everyone feels loved and appreciated regardless of their actions and external appearance. Our goal is to help each individual that walks through the doors at 1225 to develop the tools to live a healthy, productive and happy lifestyle.
At 1225 we provide classes, educational resources and college prep. Our GED/TASC classes meet 3 nights a week with separate classes for different levels. For those who want to explore their college options, we have a college prep course helping navigate the various steps in choosing the career path and college that is a best fit.
The 1225 Drop-in-Center is equipped with a state of the art pool table, a spacious TV lounge with a large big screen TV and a welcome and inviting place to chill and relax.
