Our Scholarship Winners are Ready to Change the World

Jennifer Ochiagha is a full-time grad student in mental health with a full-time job AND an internship. "There’s benefits at the end of the rainbow. So that’s what I look towards," she says. Shawn Riley is "a queer black teen man about to change the world." He's eyeing a career in medicine. They both say their scholarships from Goddard and our partner organization, the Isaacs Center, are helping them pursue their dreams.
Save the Date for Social Justice Never Sleeps!
Our annual Bash (formerly the Gala) returns to the beautiful Monarch Rooftop in Midtown Manhattan on September 28. We'll unveil the shortlists for our youth and adult social justice book prizes while celebrating the mission of Goddard Riverside and the Isaacs Center.
