A Celebration of Opportunity
Thank you to all of our donors, business partners, students and friends who helped us celebrate our 11th Annual Dream Big—A Celebration of Opportunity. With your support, we raised more than $1.8 million, a record-breaking amount for Futures and Options!
Our 2021 Dream Big Award honored Rodney O. Martin, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Voya, and Kristopher M. Hansen, Partner and Chair of the Financial Restructuring Group at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, recognizing their tremendous contributions to community service, youth mentoring, and development of youth career opportunities and pipelines.
We also celebrated our high school seniors with our Dream Big Scholarships. German Ortega (right), our Barbara L. Christen Scholar, Rahi Mitra (center), our Patricia S. Machir Scholar, and our Dream Big Scholarship Finalists Aleandra Enoe and Arefa Rahman (left), rewarding our students' efforts and supporting their education and career aspirations.
Because of your tremendous support, we can continue to offer and expand our transformative career exploration and readiness programming, mentorship opportunities, and paid internships to New York City's talented youth.
