Our multiyear funding continues to support CHCF's Opening Doors to the Future program, which targets struggling students at the Bronx HS of Business and gets them academically on track through targeted workshops on leadership development, personal development, financial literacy, and career readiness, as well as college advisement.  As a highlight of this program, participants are placed in competitive paid internships.  CHCF's deep collaboration with this high school has dramatically increased attendance and graduation rates.

“The program helped me mature mentally. It showed me my responsibilities as an adult. I made it so far in a year. I didn’t see myself where I’m at now, back then. "
