How we make the most of our resources
Forming Partnerships to Maximize Capacity
When we identify a need, we use a strategic approach to fill the gaps, collaborating with other public or private institutions to attain our goals. When possible, we use existing infrastructure rather than duplicate effort, using our core competencies to add value to others. Learn more about our partnerships here.
Magnifying the Impact of Funding
By providing the right supports in the right places, our programs demonstrate how smart uses of private dollars can make huge public investments in education and social service more effective. Even within our own organization we are experts at leveraging our resources, with minimal overhead, to make a powerful impact on the youth, families, and communities we serve.
Building Capacity through Staff Training
Investing in a highly competent workforce of leaders who are in the forefront of our field has immeasurable value. We provide staff training and training to human services professionals throughout New York City to help ensure they all have the knowledge and skills they need to work effectively with the populations we serve.
Advocating For Youth
Reflecting our mission, our knowledge of best practice and our success in developing innovative program models, we work as strong advocates in the public arena to effect change and make sure that government and private systems attend to the needs of vulnerable youth and their families.
