Engage the Community
It Takes a Community
We leverage the resources of community organizations and cultural institutions, as well as caring adults like retirees, college students and parents, to help schools build a lively culture of exploration and achievement.
These community educators join the faculty so kids are exposed to teaching artists, adult role models from the students’ neighborhoods and professionals with expertise in social-emotional development.
Small group, personalized instruction enables kids to build self-esteem, achieve mastery of a skill and establish strong bonds with trusted, caring adults, as well as with their peers.
