YOUTH

DEVELOPMENT

It is essential that we invest in our young people to ensure that they develop into positive, productive, and

civicly-engaged adults

  • Universal After-school funding for elementary and middle school to close the learning gap
  • Support, promote & champion educational alternatives like (transfer schools, Learning to Work programs, Community School etc.)

  • Phase out the use of School Safety Agents in public schools and re-purpose these funds to hire and train additional social workers and school psychologists

  • Increase funding for the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) & Work Learn Grow.

  • Support efforts to desegregate NYC public schools, especially those led by our city’s youth

  • Work with state counterparts to ensure our public schools are fully funded
