The CFK Mission
One school at a time, Change for Kids (CFK) rallies our community to provide a broad range of essential educational opportunities at under-resourced public elementary schools. By creating inspiring learning environments at our partner schools, CFK enables students to discover their unique strengths and develop the confidence to achieve.
The CFK Philosophy
Take a moment to think back to elementary school. If you're like the rest of us at CFK, what you remember most vividly is letting loose at recess, the feeling of freedom in an art class, or the thrill of a field trip to some unexplored location. Unfortunately, when public school budgets get tight, these so-called "extra" programs are the first to go. At CFK we believe educational opportunity is essential to future success. That music, art and P.E. classes engage students, boost their test scores, and prepare them properly for today's world.
For more than 15 years, CFK has strengthened our partner public schools by:
• Working with dedicated principals, teachers and parents to identify school needs;
• Responding with dynamic, engaging and educational programs;
• Providing sustained support and access to community resources.
The result? Fantastic schools that become a source of pride in underprivileged communities, and students who are poised for long-term achievement.
