About Us

Modeled after successful prison dog programs, A Fair Shake for Youth offers a hands-on therapy dog program that helps underserved NYC middle school youth build greater empathy and self-esteem. The dogs -- honest, non-judgmental and loving -- make it safe for the kids to let their guard down creating an opportunity for teaching and learning that transcends the traditional classroom.

A Fair Shake for Youth has served over 2500 youth in partnership with over 50 schools and community organizations from the South Bronx to East Harlem and Bushwick.  A Fair Shake for Youth is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization and was founded in 2010.
