BENEFITING: New City Kids
Can you believe that only 9% of low-income, urban youth graduate college by the age of 24? Since 2009, 100% of New City Kids high school seniors have gone to college and 90% have graduated or are on track to graduate by 24. That's 10x the national average!
This 2016-2017 school year, New City Kids hired over 100 high school students to serve as role models, tutors and teachers for over 200 1st-8th graders at three after- schools centers. The teens also receive a job coach to ensure excellent performance, tutoring help if needed to keep an A/B average in school, college readiness support, and ongoing mentorship.
Capco has been pleased to support New City Kids over the past three years! Help Capco continue to make an impact by supporting New City Kids to ensure that more students can benefit from the life-changing support that the New City Kids organization provides.
