Event Details

Your support of the New York City Writing Project directly impacts students and schools. Our practices have been proven to take hold, and your generous donation enables usto provide our services to a wider audience of New York City schools, teachers, administrators and, most importantly, students.  Our 2014-2015 Fundraising Campaign will support our efforts in creating a new program that directly meets an important student need: college.

College and career readiness has become something of a buzzword, but what does it mean? To the New York City Writing Project, it means helping city students not only get into college, but giving them the tools to be successful once they get there. This takes time, and it takes dedication. Fortunately, the NYCWP knows its teachers are able to provide both. That is why we have initiated our College Begins Junior Year program, in which two NYCWP teacher-leaders will supply students with the tools they need to both create a successful college application and to be successful once they arrive on campus. They will engage students in college-level writing, including the writing of their application essays, and the types of reading and writing that will be required of them when they arrive in their undergraduate degree programs. College readiness, however, extends beyond the classroom—it also requires financial support, especially for our city's populations of highest need.  This is where you come in!  Your donation--no matter how large or small--will be used to support high school students in our College Begins Junior Year summer program (July 2015) where students, with the support of NYCWP teacher-leaders and teacher-consultants, will write their way into college readiness.

 

What does your donation provide?

  • Your $25 donation will provide one week of transportation for a participating student to/from Lehman College;
  • Your $50 donation will provide a day's breakfast for all participating students;
  • Your $75 donation will provide physical materials (notebooks, pens, and other office supplies) for five students;
  • Your $100 donation will cover the cost of one full day of programming for one student.

 

College Begins Junior Year will be cost-free for all participating students. But the NYCWP depends on you to support this worthwhile and potentially life-changing effort. Please consider making a donation today by visiting bit.ly/give2nycwp . You may also make a donation in the name or memory of a loved one.


Thank you so much for your generous support.
