THE STORY:

Cecilia is a senior in high school who is looking to pursue an internship this summer and plans to pursue a career in pharmacy. She plans to attend LIU-Pharmacy Program this fall and interned at Beth Israel last summer. She currently takes College Now Classes at Hunter College and was involved in STEP Program at LIU. She knows elementary Spanish and Twi (Ghanaian language) and is trained in the arts, including drawing, painting, ceramics, piano, flute and violin. Cecilia is also an active player of tennis, basketball, swimming volleyball and track.

Donations will help Cecilia work at her dream internship and cover living and other essential costs while working during the summer.



Founded two decades ago, the Beginning with Children Foundation has educated over 1,500 Brooklyn children in grades K-8. Our schools offer an innovative and rigorous curriculum and emphasize social and emotional development of the whole child. We support our K-8 "graduates" in their high school and college years with a comprehensive academic and career oriented Alumni Program.

90% of our Alumni graduate high school in four years, versus 66% for New York City. All of our Alumni are accepted to 2 and 4-year colleges, and typically receive half a million dollars in scholarship funding. Our Alumni Program includes academic tutoring, Regents and SAT Prep, college application support, campus visits, career panels, job shadowing opportunities and corporate mentoring programs.

A hallmark of the Alumni Program is our summer internship program. After a rigorous training course, BwCF places students at summer jobs with local non-profits and corporations. Students are exposed to fields of interest, to the norms of the professional world, and have the opportunity to develop greater independence and personal accountability.
