Our mission is to invest in the social, educational  and physical well being of all New York City young adults in an inclusive environment through economic empowerment for a self-sustaining holistic transition into adulthood.

Due to the unmet needs of this under-resourced population, Breaking Ground NYC fosters an inclusive environment for individuals to transition into adulthood. We provide the invaluable tools needed to increase academic achievement, employability, health, and business opportunities for young adults. Our goal is to provide tailored services that address the specific needs of young adults as they embark on their road to self-sustainability. 

We address the needs of our targeted populations through meaningful outcomes (accountability, performance and results) as opposed to a singular process. Our mission is not only to provide instruction on how to get a job, start a business, get into college and live a healthy life; we partner with young adults to build lasting self-sustaining pathways out of poverty and into economic prosperity. 

In order to effectively break the cycle of poverty in New York City, we provide programs that acknowledge the entirety of NYC young adults experiences on their road to self-sustainability.
