Apex for Youth ("Apex") delivers possibility to underserved Asian and immigrant youth from low-income families in NYC. It recruits volunteers from the professional world to be positive role models who inspire youth to expand their horizons and see what is possible for their lives.
1 of 3 Asian students in New York City grow up in poverty. 1 of 4 students will not graduate high school. Less than 1% of government funding goes to charities focused on the Asian community.
Through mentoring and educational programs that continuously serve students from 1st to 12th grade, Apex volunteers guide and support youth to become confident, college-ready young adults who give back to the community.
