Help D.A.F.T Accomplish Our Mission!

Want to join our team in making a difference?
 Our team is raising money to benefit D.A.F.T Youth Services Inc., and any donation will help make an impact.
D.A.F.T was created because our team understood that there was a better way to address and manage students’ behavior while maximizing their chances for success. Our organization was created as an outlet for students to receive social-emotional learning and support, a method that uses a non-punitive, strength-based approach. D.A.F.T has always believed that schools should necessitate a more social-emotional based curriculum, educating students on relationship skills, social awareness, communication, and, ultimately, responsible decision making.
Our mission at D.A.F.T Youth Services Inc. aims to eradicate the school to prison pipeline by improving social and educational outcomes for New York students of a marginalized community through preventative measures that address disruptive behaviors, while creating positive school environments, increasing equity, and eliminating racial disparities.
 Many of you may be asking, why should you donate to our organization? What makes us different? There are millions of non-profit organizations serving poor and underserved communities. The difference is that we are a non-profit organization that believes in the importance of social-emotional learning and the growth it provides to young adults. Furthermore, we recognize that although schools can be fantastic outlets for students, they are not always fully equipped to provide a full range of services that students need. D.A.F.T is that beam of light for the student who has had enough, who feels hopeless, and is ready to give up.
One kid at a time is all we need to spark change. Your donation will go towards funding in several areas. We are currently offering remote tutoring, counseling, and social-emotional support to those traumatized by the effects of COVID -19. Living through this pandemic has demonstrated an increased need for our services. We must prepare to provide care to students suffering from trauma and need support reacclimating to school culture and the academic environment post-COVID-19.
Whether you donate one dollar or one hundred dollars, please know that your contribution will help us work with so many more kids and provide them with the tools they need to persevere and live their best lives.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us!
