Futures and Options empowers New York City’s youth, particularly youth of color and students from historically underrepresented communities, to acquire transferable professional skills, pursue higher education, and successfully compete in a global 21st century economy. We collaborate with employers to provide transformative career development opportunities to young people, enabling them to succeed in college and inspiring them to pursue meaningful careers.
Organizational Updates: Please stay updated on Futures and Options’ work by signing up for our newsletter on our website.
In-Kind Items: Meeting space – Futures and Options provides career development trainings to groups of 25-30 youth. We appreciate when a supporter lets us use a large meeting room in their office or shared space to host a two-hour training. This also serves as an opportunity for our students to learn about a new neighborhood in the city and gain exposure to different workspaces.
If you are interested in lending space, please contact Jessica Mischkot, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-601-0002.
Volunteer Opportunities:Futures and Options’ career development programs depend critically on volunteers to introduce students to careers, assist with work-readiness trainings, and offer mentorship and advisement. Opportunities include:
· Guest Speakers – We invite volunteers to share insight into their personal career journeys with students by providing information about their education and training backgrounds, prior work experience, and day-to-day responsibilities in their current jobs. Speakers help students understand if their jobs align with students’’ interests and skills, and offer advice for getting started in their fields.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jessica Mischkot, Program Director, at email@example.com or 212-601-0002.
Through the generosity of our friends and community, Futures and Options is able to support our students as they achieve their potential – in school, in careers, and in life. Join us and make your gift on our donation platform today!

You Gotta Believe! exists for one reason: to work toward the day when no one leaves foster care without a family. We ensure that NYC’s most vulnerable youth do not fall through the cracks by aging out alone, because being alone is unhealthy. We use the power of credible messengers and peer-to-peer engagement of former foster youth and adoptive parents of foster youth to connect youth in foster care to permanent and adoptive families. We do this to provide youth with a disruptive solution to end the cycle of abuse and to provide them with the lifelong system of love and support healthy families provide. YGB is committed to serving NYC’s most vulnerable, because we strongly believe everyone deserves a chance and no one should be left behind.
In-kind Items Needed:
$100 Visa Gift card for Advocate professional wear:
Advocates are former youth in foster care being trained in child welfare advocacy. They need professional clothes to show up to work with families and youth, to present in front of legislators/administrators, at public events, and with media. Many have never had professional clothes before -this would be their first outfit.
