The Change For Kids Model

Change for Kids is dedicated to leveling the playing field for kids so they can realize their potential.  Through partnerships with schools and like-minded community-based organizations, our unique model provides students and families with intentional experiences, access to resources, critical supports, and inspiring role models.


We provide 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.

The Change for Kids community makes our work possible. We offer a wide variety of volunteer options for individuals and companies interested in making a difference in their communities.
Whether you donate, host a fundraiser, or attend an event to benefit Change for Kids, you'll help create opportunities for young people to see themselves with different options and reimagine their own possibilities.

Join us and invest in change.
