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 Model

Change for Kids partners with NYC public schools - the largest school district in the country - to level the playing field for kids so they can realize their potential. Our unique model creates access to opportunities, intentional experiences, and positive role models.


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.
