Children's Aid at a Glance

The Children’s Aid Society is an independent, not-for-profit organization established to serve the children of New York City.

Our mission is to help children in poverty to succeed and thrive. We do this by providing comprehensive supports to children and their families in targeted high-needs New York City neighborhoods.

Teen Programs

We provide teens with a wide-range of social, arts and sports activities combined with mentoring, college preparation, entrepreneurial and leadership programs. The goal is to enhance their academic and social development and to instill the drive and motivation necessary for them to continue their education after high school.

Teen activities include:

EXCEL @ NYU Academy

EXCEL in Writing, Thinking and Inquiry is designed to prepare talented but underprivileged high school students in the South Bronx for high academic achievement and college success. It builds upon The Children’s Aid Society’s longstanding college prep EXCEL (Educational Excellence Creating Empowered Leaders) model, and represents an innovative collaboration between Children’s Aid, New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, & Human Development, The Teagle Foundation and The Squire Family Foundation.
