What is the Partnership Program?
The Partnership Program provides an opportunity for schools and community based organizations to bring a customized leadership class to the young women they work with. Our program currently serves approximately 400 young women in 20 schools and organizations throughout New York City. Our premiere "Sisterhood Academy" curriculum is a social justice course that covers identity, sisterhood, and leadership topics. Our skilled and seasoned faculty members use a popular education approach to create meaningful and worthwhile experiences for Nashers - the young women who participate in our programming.
Who should apply?
Our Partnership Program is especially committed to serving harder to reach young women such as young parents, court involved youth, over-aged/under-credited students, LGBTQIGNC youth, and young women in neighborhoods and communities that do not typically have access to these resources.
If your school or organization is interested in potentially being a site in our Partnership Program, please contact our Partnership Coordinator, Taja. To be considered, your school/organization must:
- Be based in one of the 5 boroughs of NYC
- Serve low-income young women ages 11-22, at least 85% of whom qualify for free or reduced school lunch
- Be committed to enrolling at least fifteen students in the class
- Enable the class to run for at least an hour per session, for at least 8 sessions
- Provide a regular and safe venue in which to hold the class
How do you apply?
