Equity for Children has begun a collaboration with the New York City Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD), researching and assessing the effectiveness of its Cornerstone Mentoring Program. The program addresses unemployment, teen parenthood and low rates of graduation by promoting positive change in adolescents and their attitudes toward themselves, others, and their futures. Participants are mostly African-American and Latino boys in the fifth to nine grades.
