New Yorkers For Children featured as Best in Classs on CUNYTV

New Yorkers For Children was recently featured on CUNY TV’s Study With the Best. Executive Director Saroya Friedman-Gonzalez spoke about our signature programs, designed to provide essential resources to youth in foster care throughout their educational journeys. But best of all, NYFC Scholar King Tolen shared his inspiring story of perseverance and determination as he gets closer and closer to earning his college degree.
NYFC is proud to work with The City University of New York and NYC Administration for Children’s Services to ensure that all youth in foster care have the tools they need to succeed.
