Quality Education For All

Give Chances, Inc, is a non-for-profit organization founded and registered in the State of New Jersey since 2011. It is recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity by the IRS. Our vision is to create and provide opportunities for children, youth and people with disabilities who do not have access to quality education and/or timely care due to limited resources. Give Chances offers quality learning and consulting opportunities in order to support children, youth and people with disabilities in fulfilling their dreams and talents.

Since 2015, Give Chances changed its mission and target population to children of low-income communities in New Jersey. The first program was the Joyful Children’s Choir that provided low-income immigrant children with opportunities to sing songs and learn music theories. In 2016, Give Chances started an after school program for children from low-income immigrant families to improve their academic achievement and reduce the learning gap between the poor and rich children in Palisades Park. In 2017, Give Chances opened another after school program at Bergenfield, NJ.
