EXPANSION New Settlement is deepening its partnership with the NYC Department of Education and the Taft Educational Campus in an effort to support students in temporary housing. Our team will expand with three additional staff members: an Early Awareness Advisor, a Career Readiness Advisor, and an Assistant Director at the Student Success Center. Throughout NYC, students in temporary housing are the ones that receive the least counseling out of all vulnerable populations, and the need is high at the Taft Campus. Therefore, with a full team giving wrap-around services, the goal is that students will be exposed to college/career and be connected to internships, volunteer experience, scholarship and fly-in programs, and many more opportunities starting in 9th grade. Our hope is to see an incredible difference in quality and results.
