Helping Others

Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club board member Nicholas Miller Berens, PhD, and founding director of Fit Learning, is committed to helping every student who walks through his doors – regardless of age, disability or challenges.  Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club members Brianna Cruz, Junior Youth of the Month for February and Aliyah Stone, Senior Youth of the Month for February, share Dr. Berens’ passion.  Both Brianna and Aliyah wish to follow in Dr. Berens’ footsteps by pursuing noble careers of helping others. 

Dr. Berens has a doctoral degree in psychology and has been developing the Fit Learning Method, a combination of applied behavior analysis, precision teaching, direct instruction, curriculum-based measurement, and relational frame theory, for more than 10 years.  He is an adjunct professor at the department of special education at LIU, CW Post Campus and has written several publications on developmental disabilities and behavioral analyses.  Dr. Berens has received many awards and distinctions and believes in living a full and connected life, one that helps to make the world a better place for future generations.

Eight year-old Brianna Cruz hopes to make the world a better place too by helping the sick and less fortunate and intends on becoming a nurse when she grows up.  Brianna, a third-grader at Connolly Elementary School, plays the violin, enjoys ballet, fine arts and Earth Science but can also be found dribbling down the basketball court.  “At the club I am able to learn ballet and paint all kinds of projects! I also enjoy doing scientific experiments with my friends in Earth Club,” declared Brianna.

 

Eleven year-old Aliyah Stone endeavors to solve problems and facilitates others to solve problems as well.  Aliyah’s determination to understand a situation and find the path to a resolution is a great asset as she pursues her ambitions of becoming a counselor.  Aliyah is a sixth grade at Finley Middle School and is very sporty, playing basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, pool and air hockey but she can also be found in the Computer Lab.  Of her experience at the club, Aliyah stated, “The club is a great place to be! It allows me to have fun with my friends but I’m glad the staff is there to help me with my homework.”

 

“As a new board member, I am excited about sharing my experience of working with children and giving them the confidence they need to become better students.  I am committed to giving kids like Aliyah and Brianna the tools to accomplish everything they want in life.  I am very grateful to be in a position of sharing my expertise and empowering the children of Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club.”

News

Veterans, police, residents and elected officials turned out for the renaming of Route 107/ Arterial Highway for Glen Cove’s most honored hero, Sergeant Major Daniel Joseph Daly, in a ceremony that took place on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.
