EMPOWERING STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE THEIR COLLEGE AND CAREER DREAMS.
Creative Connections NYC is a youth development program founded in 2005 to meet the growing need for college and career readiness in New York City public schools. Our mission is to empower students to achieve their college and career dreams.
We currently serve elementary, middle, and high school students in all five NYC boroughs. Each of our programs offers a unique curriculum designed to empower students to discover their aspirations, develop their skills, and fulfill their educational and professional dreams.
Creative Connections is a New York State MWBE certified Women Business Enterprise.
In the most recent academic year, our Success Coaches helped students secure over $400,000 in college scholarships.
Creative Connections provides curriculum-based instruction in eight signature programs. Our lessons are uniquely designed to actively engage students.
This year alone, Creative Connections has reached over 3,300 students in over 10 NYC districts, and clocked over 8,832 hours of programming.
"As a Success Coach, I feel it's my obligation not only to equip my students with the necessary tools to build a successful future, but also to help them build self-confidence. Many of them have taken initiative in researching and finding information on the things they want to do in the future. I have seen the looks of accomplishment on their faces and they seem more hopeful, now that they have more direction."
