Mission Statement

Description

Fresh Youth Initiatives (FYI) is a non-profit youth development organization in Washington Heights. FYI provides youth with the needed support, encouragement, experience, and life skills to show that young people, given the chance, can be strong and positive change agents in their community and in their own lives.

With few safe and nurturing options for the afterschool hours, FYI is a second home to more than 300 young people ages 10 -18 each year. Collectively, FYI youth provide more than 10,000 hours of service to the community each year. FYI complements its community service core with academic support, college preparation, meaningful first-time experiences, enrichment activities, and qualitative guidance from our staff.
