EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I've been working for Blue Engine since January of 2010 and am now raising money through the ING New York City Marathon to help Blue Engine expand its program. We're exanding, strategically but surely, from one subject in one school (last year) to two subjects in three schools.
Based on research citing "academic rigor" (the level of difficulty) of high school coursework as the strongest predictor of college graduation, Blue Engine brings Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) into New York City public high schools, where they work with entire grade levels of students to help them master the academic and non-academic skills they'll need to suceed in college before arriving on campus.
By donating to Blue Engine, you'll help us to continue our work in the third year of our pilot, while we continue to test our model and figure out the best way to accelerate academic achievement for New York City high schoolers.
