Community service partners

What do you like best about Changing the Odds? 

“What I really like about Changing the Odds is that we get to be ourselves. I
personally am very interested in community service and helping others,
especially those who need it (example: elderly, children, mentally ill, sick
patients, disabled, etc). I would never be able to do that alone. I feel good
about doing these things and we have the opportunities to do so in this
program. It’s nice to have someone help us get to these chances.”


Every student in Changing the Odds is required to complete at least 20 hours of community service annually. Our community service partners help our students fulfill this requirement with experiences that are enriching and engaging.  CTO collaborates with dozens of community based organizations throughout New York City who depend on the community service of our participants.  Those community service partners include:
