EDUCATIONAL PATHWAYS

OUR APPROACH

“Education is our most powerful investment to move our youth beyond the lines of poverty”

RIVER FUND diagnostic method of approaching those living on the lines of poverty is our 'Family-by-Family Approach'.

Our Educational Pathways' foundation was established as RIVER FUND launched the nation's first-ever 'Child Poverty Awareness Day' in 2013. The program distributed backpacks and school supplies - age and grade specific - to thousands of children living in poverty in New York City.

Our Educational Pathways now serves as the capstone for our Cradle to College Initiative - expanding our educational horizons.
