The National Award Winning Children’s Aid Society East Harlem Center Keystone Club is already working on establishing their career paths. Following their interest in shows like CSI: Miami, Law & Order and Dexter, the youth worked on a project that brought the world of Crime Scene Investigation to the East Harlem Center. The project is also a requirement for the club to maintain their Gold Status membership.

The Keystone members, along with their mentor Midge Caparosa, East Harlem Center’s Arts & Leadership Coordinator, sought out the help of the New York City Medical Examiners and District Attorney’s offices who provided professionals to talk on the subject. The youth worked on a mystery script, which they acted out at a center-wide event hosted by the Keystoners themselves on Wednesday, November 3rd! CSI: East Harlem, the evening’s theme, was filled with chilling accounts of a love triangle gone wrong. On hand to help the audience weave through the crime scene evidence and disturbing testimonies was a panel of professionals that included Missing Persons Detective Roberto Santos, Mystery/Crime Novelist Doug Magee, NYC Medical Examiner Dr. Vincent Tranchida and Assistant District Attorneys Shanda Strain and Jung Park.

Congratulations to the Keystoners for following their dreams!
