Grand Street Settlement

Posted on September 23, 2013

For designated staffing support within their year-round expanded learning time programs for school-aged youth in grades K-12. Grand Street serves economically disadvantaged public school students on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and in the Bushwick and Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn, many of whom are not achieving standard grade levels in ELA and math. They work with local schools to ensure that their academic enrichment activities reinforce and supplement the youth’s school curricula. They also provide comprehensive supports including life skills, wellness, and mental health workshops, one-on-one case management and mentoring. Their goal is to close the opportunity and achievement gaps for the children in their communities.
