The Street2Street Preparatory Academy partners with area schools to provide at-risk kids with homework help and tutoring from teachers, business professionals, lawyers, and other community leader volunteers in specific subjects such as reading, writing, and mathematics. This college preparatory program includes helping the students prepare speeches, write essays, and provide real-world training to position them to succeed both in school and in life.
The need is great: for example, in the past two years, the Paterson, New Jersey schools have graduated 90 percent of their high school students, but only five percent graduate with college-ready scores. We desire to help hard-working schools like those in Paterson change that trend while helping each student become a leader and a champion in the game of life.
Furniture and Food
As a practical outreach to Street2Street participants and others in need, we have partnered with generous people who have donated gently used furniture and with area food pantries to give at-risk kids and their families the opportunity to receive the furniture and food they desperately require. To learn more about how you can donate or receive help, call 201-445-8555 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In partnership with Kurt Schwarz and Inspire Sports Camps, Street2Street will provide a summer camp experience for up to 100 at-risk kids at Camp Grace, New York. Outdoor sports and activities will be part of the weeklong camp experience.
