BFS members have a wide range of professional backgrounds in publicity, design and media, finance, the arts, hotels, hospitality and more. The common thread of this diverse group: members really want to make a difference. You can too.
There are many opportunities to get involved:
Weekly arts & crafts, basketball, bowling and other recreational activities that encourage socialization, build relationships and self-esteem
Sponsor supplies or lessons for an artist in the YAI Arts program
Help plan social events such as holiday parties, museum trips and concert outings for YAI participants or organize a fundraiser on behalf of YAI
Provide job shadowing or internships for YAI employment graduates who are prepared for meaningful work
Network with other young professionals who share a passion for philanthropy
You can make a difference. Join us today! For more information about the Brighter Futures Society, contact Alyssa Franklin at 212-273-6551 or email@example.com.
