For continued support of the Director of Student and Family Services and the agency’s expanding service delivery efforts to families and students as the GO Project’s students resume learning in person at their Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn program sites. The Director oversees the GO Families team comprised of: 6 Success Coaches (who are trained social workers) who provide ongoing high-touch case management services to families and develop holistic Social-Emotional Learning (“SEL”) programming; 1 Coordinator of Student and Family Services; and 9 Family Engagement Associates who provide multi-lingual connections to families, and who serve as a critical resource connecting families to their public schools, GO programs, and other community services. By creating a holistic team collaborative that leverages community resources, GO increases parent engagement rates, strengthens student transitions into the 6th and 9th grades, implements high-touch case management that is responsive to student and family needs, and positively impacts upon student academic and behavioral growth. The GO Project provides year-round educational and family support services to over 700 academically struggling public school children in grades K-8 in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
