  • Host a Child this Summer

    Fresh Air summers are filled with children running barefoot through the grass and gazing at star-filled skies. This summer, we'll celebrate our 138th summer of serving New York City children and what better way to kick off the season than with a brand new host recruitment video? Thank you to Greener Media for creating this beautiful and inspiring recruitment tool.

    Aniyah felt the cool strands of grass beneath her feet, soared to new heights on the swings with her Fresh Air brother Christian, and splashed in the salty water at the beach. “Christian saw how much enjoyment Aniyah had from all her new experiences and he too became interested in his swing set that he had never played on. And, he even overcame his fear of water! With Aniyah by his side, Christian started to go further into the ocean at the beach. It brought tears to my eyes watching Aniyah enjoy herself and watching my son learn from her. I couldn’t get her off of the swings or inside no matter how hard I tried! She just loved running barefoot in our yard and being outside,” says Fresh Air host Mia.
