When & Where
Partnership with Children
In the effort to reform our public schools — arguably our country’s most critical challenge — Partnership with Children is truly making a difference. Our programs actually change the trajectory of our students’ lives, their families’ lives, and entire communities….. by changing the climate of our city’s highest poverty schools.
Partnership with Children brings Masters-level social workers into the most underserved public schools to provide counseling and classroom interventions for students at the highest risk of academic failure and drop-out. We work with students, families, teachers, school support staff and the surrounding communities to ensure that students arrive to school each day ready to learn — and that schools are safe, supportive, and conducive to learning.
We serve over 13,000 students in 27 schools across New York City,virtually all of whom are eligible for free lunch programs. Our programs decrease absenteeism, decrease high school drop-out rates, decrease student violence and bullying, increase teachers’ time spent on instruction, and increase parents’ trust in our city’s schools.
