NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program

We know it takes a neighborhood to build a child’s future.

The NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program is a universal scholarship and savings platform designed to make college and career training more accessible and achievable for all NYC public school students.

We’re now sharing a series of written briefs and the corresponding stories below to document lessons from our founding years, to provide context, and to serve as a resource for others who may wish to bring the Save for College Program to their neighborhoods. 

If you missed our release event, you can watch a recording of it here:
