Nonprofit: Fostering Change for Children

FCFC adapted the Teach for America model to enhance the child welfare workforce through the specialized selection, training, and support of new frontline workers in child welfare. Its mission is to improve vulnerable children’s well-being and chances for success by building a workforce with highly-skilled and dedicated workers who have the potential to become leaders in the field.

The program offers an employment opportunity for individuals who want to work with at-risk children, youth and families. The program partners with New York City child welfare agencies that employ the members and provide them with a full salary and benefits.

Project: Board Development

FCFC is poised to move to the next level by expanding its scope of services and reach. It wants to position its Board to help drive that change.
