COFA (Creating Opportunities for Amsterdam)

The COFA Program at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center is designed for teenagers and young adults aged 14 to 26, with a particular focus on at-risk teens. As a pathways program, COFA is dedicated to assisting participants in reaching their goals, promoting socialization, and personal development. This is achieved through the cultivation of positive social connections and by offering opportunities for learning and growth, all while broadening their horizons through exposure to new activities.

COFA is open year round in collaboration with the RISE Teen Program and NYCHA Teen Expansion Program. It runs Monday through Friday from 6pm to 9pm, and Saturdays, 12pm to 3:30pm.

*These programs are free of charge.

The program includes:

  • Social Activities
  • Workshops
  • Job Readiness
  • Chess
  • Accompanying to Job Fairs and Open Houses
