OUR PROGRAMS

NEW YORKERS FOR CHILDREN SIGNATURE PROGRAMS

Post-secondary education opens the doors to long-term economic security. However, foster youth face a myriad of financial barriers that prevent them from obtaining a degree. Many foster youth face the challenge of pursuing educational goals while struggling to pay for food, rent, utilities, rent, healthcare, and books on their own. For others, the lingering emotional trauma of foster care can contribute to difficulties and distractions that the majority of adolescents do not face. New Yorkers For Children creates pathways to achieve college success through scholarships, peer mentoring, ongoing college advising, and opportunities for networking.

WHAT THE YOUTH WE SERVE ARE SAYING

Receiving my Back-to-School Package was a very special feeling, like someone really cared about me, and my educational goals. The program gives me the motivation to strive towards greater academic achievement!”

Tiffany

Back-To-School Package Recipient

As far as my academics, you play a big role. I know that I’m not alone because if there’s anything you can do, even if it’s not related to school — like housing or personal issues — I know that NYFC will help me. I just want to say thank you because before you came into my life, I didn’t know how I was going to afford college and buy my books.

I am incredibly grateful to NYFC for restoring my hope and putting me on a path to success. I’m looking forward to graduating next semester!
