THE STORY:

I work at OBT. Today, as I sat at my desk, I overheard one of our counselors giving a participant a coat. This melted my heart, and made me even more proud to be an OBT employee. Because, not only does OBT give disadvantaged NYC youth the chance to succeed, we also care about their everyday needs. Is a participant cold? Give them a coat. Are they hungry? Buy them lunch. Are they having a hard day? Give them an ear to vent to or shoulder to cry on.

 

Every day I see bright young people entering our doors, ready to take the steps necessary to secure a better future for themselves and their family. I ask you today, if at all possible, please make a donation to our organization. You’ll be helping us give inner-city youth the tools to achieve success today, tomorrow, and for a lifetime.

 

Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow wrote -

NYC has

186k youth who are not in school or working

365k people looking for work each day

939k immigrants living in Brooklyn alone; many have no access to language classes or citizenship services

 

WE AIM TO CHANGE THAT.

 

Through our job training and education programs, over 3,000 disadvantaged, disconnected, and immigrant youth and adults start on the path to a better tomorrow each year.
