A Toast to Brighter Futures 2022

This year's 13th Annual A Toast to Brighter Futures will be held on May 19, 2022 at 7pm on Zoom. Gather your trivia team for an evening of friendly competition from the comfort of your own home!

Each spring our Futures and Options Junior Board hosts A Toast to Brighter Futures to raise funds for our Dream Big scholarships.

These college scholarships are awarded to exemplary high school seniors who have participated in Career Essentials, the Internship Program, and/or the Externship Experience. The Dream Big scholarship panel, comprised of Futures and Options Board and Advisory Council members, Junior Board members, staff, and alumni, seeks to honor young people who embody the six hallmarks of a Futures and Options student: communication, integrity, leadership, professionalism, teamwork, and an interest in exploring careers. 

These college scholarships are named in honor of our founder, Dr. Barbara L. Christen, and former Executive Director Patricia S. Machir. Since 2012, Futures and Options has awarded more than $88,000 in college scholarships.


Futures and Options is deeply grateful to our 2022 Toast corporate and individual sponsors for their generous support of our career development program for New York City's underserved youth.
