Fair Futures

Expanding Career and Higher Education Opportunities for Youth in Alternative Placement

Welcome to the Say Yes Fair Futures Program

The Fair Futures program is a partnership between Say Yes Buffalo and Erie County Department of Social Services to assist foster and kinship youth ages 13-21 by providing one-on-one coaching services in the areas of academic enrichment, career exploration, independent living skills, and post secondary opportunities. The first program of its kind in New York State outside of New York City, Fair Futures seeks to improve the educational and career outcomes for these youth.

If you are interested in enrolling in the Fair Futures program, please email the Fair Futures Supervisor, Ruth Simmons at rsimmons@sayyesbuffalo.org or call her at 716-984-1469.
