FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN NEW YORK wrote -
Friends of the Children is very happy to be partnering with the NYC Half Marathon to bring awareness to our life-changing early intervention program that is breaking the cycle of generational poverty in New York City.
At Friends of the Children New York, we seek out the city’s most at-risk children in kindergarten and activate an amazing transformation of character and outlook by pairing each with a full-time, professional youth advocate – a Friend. The Friends provide unconditional support and guidance while fostering one-on-one relationships with these children throughout their 12-year journeys to personal success.
With the assistance of our powerful community network, Friends New York helps these vulnerable youth uncover their unique strengths and become Achievers – productive members of society with the ability and ambition to impact the world around them.
