How do you break the cycle of generational poverty?
It takes a courageous, proven model.
We select children facing the highest risks from Harlem and the South Bronx.
We help them change their stories.
In FY16 94% of our youth were promoted to the next grade.
In FY16 100% of our youth avoided the juvenile justice system.
In FY16 99% of our youth avoided teenage parenting.
We commit to each child for the long-term. 12 ½ years. No matter what.
Each child is paired with a salaried, professional mentor called a Friend.
