Rapid growth over the past 5 years requires Futures + Options, a pioneer in working with young people from underserved neighborhoods, to re-examine management structure, financial management and staffing.
Nonprofit: Futures and Options
For 20+ years, Futures + Options has met the daunting challenge of finding paid internships for high school juniors and seniors (most from minority and/or immigrant families) at the city’s leading employers. Futures + Options’ success in selecting and preparing these young people has led to partnerships with 200+ employers, 185+ middle and high schools and hundreds of individuals, foundation and corporate donors. Now, its accelerating growth in revenues ($3+ million), students served (2,000+) and staff size (42) has led to new organizational challenges.
