BENEFITING: Children's Aid Society
We, the 16th Leadership Journey Team (LJ16) of Consulting & Education Center of New York (CECNY), are excited to announce our partnership with the Children’s Aid Society Dunlevy Milbank Center (Milbank). We will be raising funds to support the noble cause of educating our youth in the Harlem community.
For over 160 years, the Children’s Aid Society (CAS), a not-for-profit organization (Tax ID number 13-5562191) , has been committed to providing comprehensive support to children and their families in targeted high-need communities. CAS serves New York's neediest children and their families at more than 40 locations in the five boroughs and Westchester County. Caring begins even before birth, through prenatal counseling and assistance, and continues throughout the high school years with college and job preparatory training programs. All aspects of a child’s development are addressed as he or she grows, from health care to academics to sports and the arts. Since CAS recognizes that stable children live in stable families, it provides a host of services to parents, including housing assistance, domestic violence counseling and health care access.
We, LJ16, are committed to serving Milbank, which continues the tradition of CAS to provide an array of wrap-around services to children and their families. We are dedicated to having an immediate and lasting impact on the children of Milbank. We will serve these children by providing tutoring during the after-school and weekend programs and raising $20,000 in funds and in-kind donations. These funds will be invested in the latest educational technology to ensure that these children have the tools to develop the requisite skills to successfully compete in the 21st century.
We ask that you join us in this noble venture and make a generous contribution to this cause.
