Mission Society of New York City is the oldest nonprofit in New York dedicated to ending multigenerational poverty. Since 1812, over 6.5 million New Yorkers have come through Mission’s doors seeking lifechanging economic opportunity. Mission has helped our neighbors succeed in attaining their future goals by continually reimagining the urban learning landscape and building new educational capacity. Specifically, in every generation, we launch innovative, experiential educational programs and services to best meet the evolving needs of New York City’s youth and families.
Today, we provide over 5,400 young people and parents with a progressive suite of academic enrichment, college prep, and career readiness programs at our flagship building on Malcolm X Boulevard and 12 public school programs in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.
