Education and Youth Achievement Fund
Thirty percent of Brooklyn third graders are unable to read at grade level. 38% of Brooklynites are foreign-born and without essential language skills to help them succeed.
The Education and Youth Achievement Fund promotes access to quality education and academic success for all children and adults. It also supports programs that help young people make smart life choices and nurture their social and emotional well-being. Its goals are to:
- Combine tutoring, academic support networks, and enrichment activities to advance student achievement.
- Encourage action-oriented, youth-led community projects that promote collaboration, leadership development, and critical thinking.
- Build bridges between youth and trusted, responsible adult role models through effective mentoring programs.
