In this challenging time of COVID-19, partner with Tomorrow’s Leaders NYC (TLNYC) as we raise funding to launch two Tomorrow’s Leaders Learning Centers; one in The Bronx and one in Brooklyn.


As you may be aware, after major educational struggles last year with virtual learning at home, NYC schools have returned in-person for the 21-22 school year. In an effort to support students in need, Tomorrow’s Leaders NYC has answered the call to create a safe, enriching, socially distanced environment for students who need personalized support after-school, on weekends, and during all school breaks. Enrolled students who visit TLNYC Learning Centers will enter a supportive and friendly space dedicated to providing middle and high school participants with a myriad of programming opportunities including critically-needed academic and social/emotional support services. 


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, low-income students and families of the South Bronx and East New York are still facing numerous obstacles. From continued technical support and internet issues to home/neighborhood environment issues, middle and high school students in this category are at higher risk of not/not being able to complete school/homework. When school/homework is not completed over a long timeframe, the issue balloons and can end (1) with a non-passing grade, (2) being held back if the issue persists, and (3) having truancy-related issues that could end up in dropping out of school.


As you may be aware, opening a TLLC in both The Bronx and Brooklyn will require funding. We are currently raising $50,000 which will keep two TLLCs operational for 12-months; $25,000 to fund Brooklyn’s TLLC and $25,000 to launch/fund The Bronx’s TLLC.


Using TLNYC best practices as a guide, TLNYC Learning Centers will offer the following services to youth ages 13-21 1) Academic Support, 2) Community Service/Social Justice Workshops and Projects, 3) One-on-one and Group Mentoring Sessions, 4) College Access Workshops, and 5) Job and Internship Readiness Programming.
