The WPYB celebrates those who have made the White Plains Youth Bureau what it is today.

Monica AndralliskiMonica C. Andralliski

Monica C. Andralliski is a native of White Plains, NY. She grew up primarily on Lake Street, where she learned the respect of self, family, friends and community, which led her to the White Plains Youth Bureau as a youth. Monica graduated from White Plains High School “Class of 1980”. Monica continued her education at Marymount College Tarrytown, NY majoring in Interior Design, which is one of her passions.  
      She started her career at IBM in Purchase, NY, where she provided executive administrative support to the Assistant General Counsel and several attorneys, in the Intellectual Property Law Department. After 11 ½ years Monica decided to pursue other opportunities, which led her career in the direction of office management in various industries, specializing in office moves/facility operations, and project management in the NYC and Westchester areas. Those experiences, and her entrepreneurial spirit, led her to start-up her own company in 2014, whose clients include Grammy Award winning artist Lupe Fiasco and several executives in the legal, real estate and music industry.  
      Monica is an active member of Bethel Baptist Church, White Plains, NY where she currently serves as Co-Chairperson, Trustee Ministry. Monica was the Re-Entry Team Coordinator strategizing and organizing the church’s Covid-19 operation plan for worship services to begin in September 2020. With Monica’s deep ties to the church and the White Plains community, she readily became involved in the White Plains Youth Bureau. Monica volunteers both in and outside of her church and community. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration Management from Concordia College, Bronxville, NY. She also serves on the Board of the Friends of White Plains Youth Bureau as Treasurer.

Bryon SmallsByron Smalls

Byron started attending events sponsored at the Youth Bureau Teen Lounges as early as in his elementary school days. By the time he was in middle school he started his first job through Youth Employment continuing his relationship with the Youth Bureau through high school and undergrad. After receiving degrees from Norfolk State and SUNY Purchase, as well as a Masters, he worked in the private sector, before returning to White Plains to pursue a career in Education and Public Service. After several years working with the White Plains Board of Education, Byron returned to his roots and took on a full time position back at the Youth Bureau.  
      Byron has been recognized for his hard work with numerous awards, including the prestigious Joey Award for Outstanding Work for the Advancement of Youth Development; he was selected as 1 of 18 National After School Ambassadors for the United States, and honored by My Brother’s Keeper and Black Girls Rock for his work in the community. Byron has also served as President and Vice President of the Directors Network for the Child Care Council of Westchester, the Executive Board of the White Plains Board of Education Staff Development, the Harlem Renaissance Housing and the Boy Scouts of Westchester and Putnam New York. Byron is also a proud member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.  
      According to Byron, the Youth Bureau helped to guide him throughout his life preparing him for life’s obstacles and challenges as well as teaching him how to reach his goals. He is honored to be able to do the same for all the youth and families he now serves as Director of the After School Department.

Troy NewbeyTroy Newbey

Mr. Troy Newbey was born and raised in White Plains, New York. He was the first in his lineage to go to college and obtain a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and two master’s degrees in General/Special Education and School Building Leadership from Mercy College. Being raised by a single mother and being the youngest of four was a challenge, not to say the least. During his childhood, he experienced the loss of his older brother, the stroke his mother suffered when in 5th grade, and the transition to Rochambeau School, as he was expelled as a Junior from high school. The White Plains Youth Bureau and the Reach for Success Program helped to shape his life and were the pillars he leaned on to find his identity, while embracing his challenges and learning from them. Being part of such an enriching program supported his reliance and drive to overcome his circumstances in retaining a sense of motivation and believe in himself.  
      He has been an educator for more than 20 years as a teacher and administrator. Five years at Andrus Children, and fifteen in the Mt. Vernon City School District where he is currently the Assistant Principal at Cecil H. Parker Elementary School.  
      Mr. Troy Newbey strives to lead by example to instill morals and values and build a climate and culture of success where children are given the tools they need to navigate the world where they can make positive decisions that will afford them opportunities to be successful and productive citizens of a society that is forever changing. Giving them a sense of hope that the possibilities of achievement are endless and that their lives matter!
