Our Work in New York

Each year, our network of over 9,300 middle- and high-school educators in the tri-state area reaches more than 600,000 students in 1,350 schools. We provide educators with powerful curriculum, innovative professional development, and follow-up support on a range of topics including racism, antisemitism, bullying, immigration, and identity. As students explore the complexities of history and current events, they reflect on the choices they confront in their own lives.
