The goal of NYC For Youth is to ensure that children in the Harlem community have opportunities to get exposure to traditional and non-traditional career opportunities, often times not accessible to them.

We are training them to become leaders for the 21st century equipped with the tools needed to be successful in their chosen path

Criminal justice

  • Our at-risk youth face a disproportionate risk of falling victim to the school-to-prison pipeline.

  • Careers and Entrepreneurship

  • We engage, motivate, and prepare our youth for future opportunities and success.

  • Inclusion

  • All children are welcome, regardless of immigration status or race.

Mental health

COVID-19 has negatively impacted the mental health of our children.


We foster self-esteem, teamwork, physical health, and creativity by providing various recreational activities.
