The student activists of Teens Take Charge are working relentlessly to advance educational equity in New York City.
Teens Take Charge received a generous $25,000 donation match challenge. That means every donation before the end of the year, up to $25,000, will be matched dollar for dollar! As part of Giving Tuesday, we’re asking you to chip in and help us reach our goal.
This year, despite a crazy pandemic that upended our lives, we rescued 35,000 summer youth internships from the chopping block, introduced state legislation to repeal the racist law governing admission to specialized high schools, and filed a federal Title VI complaint against NYC DOE for racially discriminatory practices.
And we have even BIGGER plans for 2021! Help us keep speaking, resisting, empowering, and fighting.
