The goal is for all kids to have a fair chance at success - now and in the future. In the words of NYC students, success means “to set a goal and achieve it.”
Our theory of change is simple. In order to level the playing field, all kids need:
A fair chance to explore, experience, and dream.
to know they are in the driver’s seat of their future and have the skills to course-correct when roadblocks arise.
CFK provides year-round enrichment programming during school and vulnerable out-of-school times, like evenings and summer, in collaboration with our school partners.
All of our programs are centered around three core components:
CFK’s customized, research-based curriculum helps kids learn about themselves and how to set goals and achieve them. This is interwoven into all of our activities and adaptable across different programs.
CFK staff and volunteers ensure kids have positive support systems outside of their immediate families that are ongoing, reliable, inspirational, and represent diverse life paths.
CFK provides year over year wraparound engagement to deepen our impact.
