Tim Foley, the CEO and Executive Vice President of the Building and Realty Institute (BRI), Dr. Lillian F. Reynolds, a certified NYS teacher and a licensed social worker, and Jasmine Rice, Property Manager for Enclave Equities, were recognized at the event for their dedication in helping Westchester’s youth with career development and employment opportunities.

Foley is only the third Executive Vice President in the 75-year history of the BRI. He holds an additional role as the Director of the Building and Allied Construction Industries of Westchester, the local affiliate for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the New York State Builders Association (NAHB).

The benefit raised funds for The Center for College & Careers (CCC), which is at the heart of the Center’s youth and young adult programs. The CCC transforms the lives of youth and young adults (ages 13-24) so they can pursue post-secondary education or start on a career track. CCC helps participants develop skills and confidence while creating opportunities for them to have successful futures in whatever path they choose. Of particular note, the FutureWorks to FutureCareers is a free vocational training and certifications program for Mount Vernon, Mamaroneck, and New Rochelle residents 16-24 years old.
