Funding Announcement

The New York State Office of Children & Family Services has announced a new, 5-year funding opportunity for afterschool programs!

Community Change, Inc.’s (CCI) youth programs have been the key components of proposals that have won more than $45 million in local, county, state and federal funding competitions. This includes NYSED’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Extended School Day/School Violence Prevention, and My Brothers’ Keeper, as well as OCFS’s former Advantage Afterschool and Empire Afterschool Programs.

CCI’s project-based, SEL programs are aligned with the Positive Youth Development Framework and address the following areas:

• Career Awareness • Civic Engagement • Culinary Arts

• Cultural Relevance • Financial Literacy • Healthy Relationships 

Teacher PAI is our artificial intelligence-powered resource that makes replicating our youth development programs fast and easy.

Community Change, Inc. is certified as a New York State Minority Business Enterprise, and is also certified to provide Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) professional development.

Contact us for support in adopting our youth and professional development programs as key elements in your OCFS LEAPS proposal.
