Friends of the Children NY is dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty through salaried, professional mentoring. The organization selects the highest-risk children from Harlem and the South Bronx, and commits to working with those children from kindergarten through high school graduation – 12 years, no matter what. Upon joining the program, each child is paired with a professional mentor who spends a minimum of 14 hours per month both in and out of the classroom with the eight children they serve.
