Futures and Options Prepares for Annual Dream Big Celebration
Make Your Mark at Dream Big
Futures and Options is excitedly anticipating the 6th Annual Dream Big – A Celebration of Opportunity, which will be held on Tuesday, October 18th at 583 Park Avenue, from 7pm to 10pm.

Dream Big is Futures and Options’ signature fundraising event and recognizes those businesses and leaders who are making it possible for young people to acquire the work-readiness skills, career opportunities and higher education to achieve educational and professional success.

This year, Futures and Options is honored to present its 2016 Dream Big Awards to Morgan Stanley and to Thane Carlston and Bill Derrough of Moelis & Company's Recapitalization and Restructuring Group, recognizing their extraordinary commitment to helping NYC youth achieve their education and career dreams and preparing them to become productive members of our workforce.

Another highlight of Dream Big is the presentation of college scholarships to our high school seniors. The Barbara L. Christen Scholarship will be awarded to an exemplary Futures and Options high school senior who has participated in Career Essentials or the Internship Program. The IPG Mediabrands Scholarship, with an accompanying summer internship, is awarded to a Futures and Options high school senior who is interested in pursuing a career in media and advertising.

For Dream Big sponsorships and tickets, please visit our website. For questions about the event, or for the discounted alumni rate, please contact Amanda Compton or call 646.880.3603. We hope to see you on October 18th! Thank you!
New Fall Programs
Our College Guidance Initiative
The College Guidance Initiative provides workshops that increase students' awareness of post-secondary education opportunities and assist them in successfully applying to college.

We are very excited about a new program called Moneythink that we are piloting this year. Through this program, we will provide students with the tools they need to make educated financial decisions when selecting a college.
