NYC Kids Rise and District 30
I am proud to be a part of the @NYCKidsRISE Save for College Program community! Over the past four years, community partners from across Queens have come together to design and pilot a community-building platform for NYC students, families, and neighborhoods. To date, the Save for College Program has enrolled over 13,000 students from 39 NYC public schools in Queens (~95% of all kindergarten, first, second, and third graders), accumulating over $6 million in assets for their educational and economic futures. To learn about the pilot phase of the Save for College Program, and how it can be expanded to build individual and community wealth for generations to come, check out NYC Kids RISE’s newly released videos and briefs (including my own video - click below to watch the video)

Summer Rising is New York City’s free school-based summer program for any City child in grades K–8. Summer Rising will integrate the strengths of DOE academics with the Department of Youth & Community Development’s (DYCD) school-based enrichment programming. Students in grades K–8 will get outside, learn, and engage with peers and caring adults in safe, supervised, and enriching ways. These programs will provide a bridge to the next school year and allow students to reconnect with one another and with their schools. Students will address unfinished learning while being provided avenues for recreation, exploration, and fun. For more information click here
New York State Integration Project
The purpose of the NYSIP-PLC project is to increase student achievement in New York State Title I Schools, particularly those schools identified for improvement, by encouraging greater integration by race and ethnicity, as well as socioeconomic, special education, and English language learner/Multilingual learner (ELL/MLL) status in Title I schools.
