THE STORY:

Joshua is a junior in high school who is looking to pursue an internship this summer and is interested in nursing. He is a Breakthrough NY Scholar and previous Opportunity Network Prep Scholar. He previously interned at Beth Israel last year and has also worked at Churches United for Fair Housing, Hennessy Dermatology. He participates in our Barclays Mentoring Program, college awareness and test prep programs and served as a tutor for READ. He is looking forward to building on experience from previous internships and improving public speaking skills.

Donations will help Joshua work at his 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.

Joshua is the kind of student that deserves a rich internship this summer. He's proven his dedication to education and excellence and I'm supporting his internship this summer because of that. I hope you'll join me! 4 years ago
