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.
91% of our youth receive their high school diploma or GED
95% of our youth remain free from involvement in the juvenile justice system
94% of our youth wait to parent until after their teen years
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.
