Through access to a purposeful blend of resources, programs and people, we give kids the opportunity to discover who they are, what they want to be in the future, and how to get there.
New York City is the richest city in the world^ yet almost one in four children lives at or below the poverty line.
CFK works to level the playing field by exclusively partnering with kids living in areas of concentrated poverty that are historically under-invested in and predominantly inhabited by people of color.*
For kids to succeed, not only do they need access to opportunities that expand their awareness beyond the familiar, they also need to believe they are in control of their future and know the path to get there.
This is why Change for Kids creates opportunities to help kids develop the skills, connections, and awareness necessary to achieve the future of their dreams.
