Catalyst Network Foundation Inc. (CNF)
The Catalyst Network Foundation (CNF) is a New York City and Washington D.C. - based 501(c) (3) organization, founded in 2011. CNF is a non-profit focused in career and professional development programming our mission is to engage under-served and high-potential youth (ages 14-25) and veterans (ages 21-30) with successful projects by providing the proper tools, network, and development opportunities.
CNF admits specifically high school sophomores and juniors in its program through its partnership high schools in New York City and Washington, D.C. At the moment, the nonprofit maintains three cohorts with over 70 Fellowship Scholars. Many of the Fellows are enrolled in undergraduate studies at prestige collegiate institutions and many of the senior class High School Fellows have received acceptance to top educational institutions.
The Fellowship Scholars are paired with a Mentor through CNF’s Mentorship Program and have secured paid internships at top start-ups and science and medical institutions through the organization’s internship program.
Over the past two years the Fellows have participated in corporate tours and created/pitched presentations to corporations such as Google, Goldman Sachs, Nike, LinkedIn, Morgan Stanley, HBO, Microsoft, Essence Magazine, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Hughes Hubbard Reed LLP, Bloomberg, FOX News, BET, and NBC Studios to name a few; pertaining to solving concerning matters that affect their high schools.
Our career and college preparatory workshops are held throughout the year and educate over 250 high school students in the Washington, D.C and New York City Metropolitan area.
The organization is truly grassroots, the leadership team (http://catalyst-network.org/about-us/leadership-team/) all volunteer and steer the nonprofit. Three years ago CNF was awarded a Proclamation issued by Ranking Member, Congressman Ed Towns for recognizing the achievements of the Catalyst Network Foundation Inc.
