Impact to Change: Our Benefit Honorees!



We are thrilled to announce our honorees for EVC’s June 8 Virtual Spring Benefit!


Our theme this year is “Impact to Change,” and each of these three extraordinary individuals, in their own way, embodies what EVC strives for when we work to have an impact and make real, positive change:


  • Chris Caraballo: is an EVC graduate and an actor turned photographer turned software engineer for Google. He has returned to EVC as an alumni leader and joined EVC's new Alumni Advisory Council.


  • Haleeq Usman: born in Warsaw, Poland, and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, and Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Haleeq’s journey from Section 8 housing to successful Adobe software engineer to EVC’s community is a story of resilience, family, and what happens when a young person with passion and depth is offered opportunities.


  • Torrance York: Celebrating her 25th year as member of EVC’s community, Torrance joined EVC first as an educator in 1997, then went on to become a board member in 2001. Torrance’s commitment to and impact on EVC is incalculable.


Join us on June 8th from 6:00 - 8:00pm ET for EVC’s Virtual Spring Benefit.


In addition to celebrating these three honorees, we will be premiering two powerful youth-produced documentaries.


We’ll see you there!
