Our mission is to transform and strengthen education for underserved youth in New York City through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) by providing them with comprehensive, enriching programs for maximum growth. ICFNY will expand upon its mission by building, funding and managing a network of exceptional, eco-friendly, high-tech community educational centers.
Even though ICFNY’s focus is on STEM education, we will support at-risk youth with an interest in the arts in order to support all of our kids. Accordingly, our future educational centers while have a strong emphasis on science, technology, and the arts, thus concentrating on STEAM education. STEM + Arts = STEAM
We will build, fund and manage high-tech, eco-friendly community educational centers in order to provide additional quality, academic resources in marginalized school districts within New York City. It is the goal of the Foundation to establish community educational centers in every borough of New York City and contribute to stellar academic performance in the city, specifically in science, technology, engineering, and the arts, by the teaching of marketable skills associated with STEAM–related careers.
