Scope & Impact

The kids of Future Possibilities choose goals that are close to their hearts. Over the years, the children’s Goals of Contribution have benefited dozens of individuals, institutions, organizations and causes:

  • Women’s and children’s shelters
  • Hospitals
  • Animal shelters
  • American Cancer Society
  • Literacy programs
  • Child and youth welfare
  • Seniors’ residences
  • Food banks
  • Environmental causes
  • Homelessness

Our children have had a positive and direct impact on the lives of many people in their chosen communities. On average, each child in our program – in executing his or her goal – directly involves 5 people and typically attracts the additional involvement of about 30 others.  Based on this ratio, in a typical year the Future Possibilities program will impact the lives of approximately 1,500 people!

For example:
Amber, a 10-year-old Future Possibilitarian, inspired several local businesses to donate prizes for the Charity Bingo she ran at a local Seniors’ Center. She enrolled the assistance of 7 people to volunteer in the execution of her Future Possibilities’ Goal of Contribution. More than 30 seniors attended! The $130 she raised was donated to a local women’s shelter.

Our unique, Ready, Set, Goal! curriculum targets the kind of issues, concerns and interests that are common to elementary school children such as:

  • Bullying
  • Violence
  • Gangs
  • Sexism
  • Peer pressure
  • Adult pressure
  • Body Image
  • Popularity
  • Racism
  • Shyness
  • Prejudice
