Tiempo: NYC Pride March and Latino summer youth programs

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- On this edition of Tiempo, New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker shuttered all overnight camps for the summer season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some summer youth programs will be allowed to open in a limited capacity, including youth employment programs that provide jobs to 1,900 low-income youth, many of which are Latino.

Catholic Charities of New York says the cancellation or limited programs will have a significant economic impact on inner-city youth and their families.

Eddie Silverio, Executive Director of Youth Services at Catholic Charities and Derenis Santana Del Rosario, a program participant, speaks about the impact of the New York State's decision not to open overnight camps and the benefits of the summer youth employment program.
