Friends of the Children NY changes the destiny of New York City’s most vulnerable children… one child at a time.
Friends of the Children NY is a unique early intervention program dedicated to helping New York City’s most at-risk children become productive, contributing members of their community. We accomplish this by employing full-time youth advocates, called “Friends,” to work one-on-one with our Achievers beginning in kindergarten and maintaining that relationship through high school graduation. Our goal is to get 100% of our Achievers to graduate from high school with a plan for their future, having avoided the juvenile justice system and having put off parenthood until adulthood.
