Talent, strength and smarts are nothing without opportunity.


For thousands of children in New York City access to quality afterschool programming could be the difference between being a high performing student or just another urban statistic.

The numbers in New York State are staggering:

  • More than 75% of New York City public schools students live at or below the poverty line with working parents, leaving them unsupervised for hours.
  • Violent juvenile crime TRIPLES during the after school hours of 3:00 and 6:00 PM. This is also the period of time when children become victims of crime.
  • Unsupervised teens were four times more likely to have had sex or used drugs than teens who were supervised.

New York Edge provides high quality afterschool programs which have a proven track record of heightening academic achievement, improving social skills and creating a more confident, well-rounded student.

Each dollar spent on afterschool programs saves the taxpayer $3.00. Factoring in benefits from crime reduction, that same dollar investment increases to a savings of up to $12.00 resulting in millions of dollars saved by the city per year.

Your donation to New York Edge can change the lives of children with quality afterschool programs in academics, athletics, and the arts. Give ALL students the chance to succeed in school and in life- Donate Today.
