Operation Slumber

NIDC’s YMI (Young Men’s Initiative) students were given the opportunity to spend the night aboard famous Intrepid! 

Thanks to funding from the DYCD, participants were able to explore the Intrepid Sea and Air Museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion, take a flashlight tour of the flight deck, ride in a flight simulator, mingle with other New York City youth, and sleep like sailors in actual sailor cots.
