NYCYF events provide opportunities for Youth Funders to network, share lessons learned, explore new challenges facing New York City youth, and examine the City’s philanthropic and public response to these issues. The network also creates venues in which local funders can learn from youth programming, research, and policy experts, both locally and nationally. In addition to in-person meetings, NYCYF uses diverse vehicles including webinars, conference calls, LIST-SERVS, and policy briefs to communicate with its constituents.

You’re Invited

As funders grapple with programs to increase college readiness and access, this remarkable film and program offer insights into solutions that work.

Stepping Up follows high school seniors who have been trained by College Access: Research & Action (CARA) to work as peer college counselors in their under-resourced, highly segre­gated schools.

By exploring the challenges these students face, and the tools they need to succeed, the film will build support for the reforms young people need to fulfill their promise.

This special film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and the youth leaders who are doing the work of college access. RSVP today!
