Partnerships & Event-based Programs

You can make a difference in a young person’s life by providing clothing and shoes to a needy child, or the opportunity to strive for one’s personal best through participation at NYO Games.

Each of our event-based programs helps strengthen our community, and provides hope and support for our young people through several impactful programs.

Together, we strengthen the future of more than 10,000 youth each year. Invest in our youth today!
