Ever wonder who drives the paratransit vans that take your neighbor to the doctor or the food trucks that keep your grocery store shelves stocked?
Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation is putting young men and women into those driver seats through the new CHAMPION Network Program.

The program is funded through a grant from Change Capital Fund – a collaboration of 15 foundations and financial institutions looking for new ways to move people up the economic ladder.
