What happens when you empower at-risk teenagers in Jersey City to become role models for the kids in their neighborhood?

You build confidence. You give hope. You share love. You transform lives.

Through its holistic approach of fusing music with academic, leadership and spiritual development New City Kids engages young people of all ages to create a strong, loving community. A community where 100% of seniors graduate high school and go on to college. New City Kids is more than an after school center. Find out how our teens are empowered to lead two after school centers, a summer camp, and a sailing school and in the process not only become leaders but help turn an old city into a New City. Walk through our doors and witness how a moment of discovery leads to a lifetime of change.
