“When I immigrated to the U.S. in 2000, I could hardly speak English. Having a mentor helped me integrate into American society.”
APEX currently serves New York City youth mainly between the ages of ten to seventeen. Our programs weave one-to-one mentoring with structured programs that help students acquire skills for success in school and in life. By offering guided educational programs as well the flexibility of social/cultural activities, APEX is able to make a significant impact on the lives of our students. The strength of our programs is also a result of the ongoing training and support for our volunteers. APEX programs are generally offered at no cost to youth participants.
