Change for Kids

Want to make a difference? Join Change For Kids at one of our partner schools, Brooklyn Landmark, and read to a classroom of excited elementary school students! Volunteers will read the "book of the month" to students in classrooms 3K - 5. After reading, there will be time for engagement with the students and teachers before they go back to their busy school days. A great way to start your Friday morning!

About Change for Kids

Location:

110 E 23rd St, Fifth Floor, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10010, US

Mission Statement

Change for Kids (CFK) provides critical supports, experiences, and access so kids in New York City public schools can reimagine their possibilities and overcome inequity. We believe opportunities create options. We believe that one can’t dream what one has not seen. We believe creating opportunities for young people allows them to see themselves with different options, through different lenses. And this affords them the tools to reimagine their own possibilities and the tools with which to overcome inequity.

Description

The Change for Kids community works together to allow young people to see themselves in the future with unlimited options. CFK School Managers, in partnership with principals, teachers, and CFK leadership, identify the needs of each CFK partner school.

Change for Kids partners with 13 schools across the five boroughs reaching almost 5,000 students. We provide and manage a mix of resources, including leadership support for principals, teachers, parents, and other school leaders; academic enrichment and engagement programs; volunteers; corporate sponsors; school community support; custom CFK programming designed to fill the gaps identified by our partner schools; and meaningful volunteer opportunities for individuals, public and private organizations, and college/university students.
