The GO Project serves 500 students from over 30 public elementary & middle schools in Lower Manhattan and Chelsea. Most of our students are first or second generation American, under-resourced children and all are facing serious learning challenges at school.
At the GO Project, we address the needs of the whole child through integrated, year-round academic programs and family support services. Young children, especially those facing life and learning challenges, need more than just an excellent education. They need support that begins at home, where their parents may work multiple jobs, speak little English and have few resources. They need tangible academic and life skills that build knowledge and self-confidence. And, they need to experience academic success- the fruits of their own hard work.
By providing year round education and family services to academically challenged Kindergarten through 7th graders, GO educators, social workers and volunteers equip students with the confidence and skills they need to realize their potential and succeed at school, at home and in life.
The GO Project address the needs of our students through three holistic, mutually reinforcing strands of service- GO School, GO Summer and GO Families.
