To provide support as they both strengthen and significantly scale their work this year, with their student and educator programs expected to reach 100 NYC public schools and 35,000 students – up from just 31 NYC public schools and 16,000 students served last year. These efforts include: a network of high-performing public schools which they support with a comprehensive suite of services for teachers, school leaders, college counselors, and students; a range of programs for the students and alumni of these schools that are aimed at postsecondary planning and success; their citywide “Crew Initiative” which is bringing their distinctive student advisory and support structure to another 50 public schools this year; and their student and educator programs rooted in their strongest practices, such as teambuilding, project-based learning, and student-engaged assessments. NYC Outward Bound Schools transforms schools and changes students’ lives by bringing their unique educational approach to NYC’s young people and their public schools, with a focus upon serving students from historically underserved communities.
