BENEFITING: America Needs You

EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2012

THE STORY:

College.  University.  Whatever you want to call it.  A four-year period some of us see as a "given." Following in our family's footsteps, we finish high school and take the next step to spend 4 years starting to figure out how to be adults.  (Don't know about you, but I'm still working on that one). 

That "life chapter" is in many ways critical.  And, when your family didn't do it before you, it can be even harder to figure it all out.  Since 2010, New York Needs You (NYNY) has built a successful model to fill that gap -- an intensive 2-year mentorship program pairing young professionals (mentor-coaches) with these talented, achieving, hard-working, and yet under-resourced students (fellows), all of whom are first in their family to go to college.  NYNY Fellows are doing great things: pursuing graduate degrees, joining both public and private sectors, and most importantly "paying it forward" -- no matter what they do upon graduation from college and the program, they are all deeply committed to their families and communities, wanting to give back, help others, and grow the network -- realising the powerful multiplier effect of this incredible program.

In 2012, we start the national expansion of the network with the first replication next door, in New Jersey... stay tuned!
