Support Youth in New York City
Using the success of our Towns abroad as a foundation, The Village on Staten Island offers A Chance In Life’s twist on the traditional Drop-in Youth Center. Elements of self-government are incorporated into day-to-day activities, including youth-led teams. By specifically addressing the almost 20% of young people who are disconnected from school and employment, A Chance In Life can help prepare those individuals for a more promising, successful, and self-sufficient future.
The Village offers services that best fit the needs of the community, including food distribution services, tutoring, ESL courses, college readiness training, recreational activities and leadership development training.
You can support our work in New York City with a gift of $100.
