Make a difference
Changing the Odds seeks to change the trajectory of Bronx youth by providing safe and supportive spaces with caring adults who empower them to become thriving, successful, and engaged young adults in their community. Since 2011, we have reached over 500 students with effective and relevant programs and integrated medical and mental health services to support young people as they transition to adulthood.
We are making an impact!
Our data analyses indicate that CTO students had higher school-day attendance and greater credit accumulation towards graduation than control group students. Additionally, students with higher levels of program participation had fewer incidences of cigarette and marijuana smoking, drinking alcohol or getting into fights – behaviors that can negatively impact academic sucess and school completion.
Every dollar helps us to provide young people with the effective programming that helps them turn around their lives and leads them to a healthy and successful future. Join us to make a difference!
