BENEFITING: ADAMS STREET FOUNDATION INC
As many of you know, I've joined the Junior Board for The Urban Assembly School for Law & Justice (SLJ) in Brooklyn. Did you also know that 85% of NYC public school students live in poverty? Or that only 22% of NYC public school students were college ready last year?Despite these odds, 90% of SLJ graduates have gone on to college!
This year SLJ is celebrating its 10 year anniversary! Please help me support the next wave of students as part of SLJ’s 1,000 Future Scholars Campaign.
For children living in poverty, a college degree matters. College graduates earn 70% more than their non-graduate peers as they begin to build their careers. The path to college is a path out of poverty, but SLJ students need our support to make their dreams of college a reality.
The money raised goes to providing the scholars of SLJ with a spectrum of focused services such as: academic support programs, internships, mentorships, on- and off-site extracurricular activities, pre-college summer programs, trips and guest speakers, community service opportunities, early college awareness curriculum, college visits, and career advising.
