Shiloh NYC
The East Side

Shiloh NYC is a Christian not-for-profit organization dedicated to equipping New York City underserved youth and their families with tools that build hope, confidence and the skills to attain their goals. Shiloh NYC offers school-based programs in the South Bronx, weekly teen mentoring meetings, and summer camp.

Mission: Equipping youth with tools that build hope.

Vision: To equip underserved youth in the Tri-state area with tools to build hope, strong moral character, respect for self and others, and the confidence and skills to attain their goals. To meet this vision, Shiloh teaches, mentors, and befriends youth to promote their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth.

Our volunteers provide mentoring for weekly small group activities, one-on-one college prep help, and encourage students to set long-term career goals.
Our funding helps to provide for program costs related to the mentoring program and college prep program, curriculum, and local college visits/trips.
Through creative staff and effective use of volunteers, Shiloh is incredibly nimble and able to respond to the changing needs of New York City youth.

Hi-def Program

“My hope for our teens is that they will experience God’s unconditional love through our mentors. As a recent immigrant from Mexico to the South Bronx, Rosa felt totally out of place in school and had a difficult time making friends. But when she joined our afterschool program two years ago, Rosa found a haven in a chaotic city where she was free to be herself. Because her mentors recognize and value her personality and skills, Rosa has opened up to those around her. She told me recently that the love she's received from our program have caused her to view God as one who cares about her.”
