A Note of Gratitude

Students at an SLP workshop in Sunset Park

There is much to be worried about these days; and it can overwhelm the best of us. At SLP, we are grateful for the inspiration and energy of our Fall 2017 students: more than 200 Brooklyn youth ranging in age from 3rd-10th grade.

Thanks to the generosity of so many who participated in our 2017 fundraiser, we were able to bring our Residency Program and SLP Club to public schools in Brownsville, Sunset Park, Downtown Brooklyn, Vinegar Hill, Boerum Hill, and Gravesend. These sessions are in full swing, with students tackling issues ranging from bullying and school lunch to air pollution and racial profiling.

We hired four fabulous faculty members, launched a new website, expanded our offerings to include customized workshops, and are continuing to spread the word about the power of youth engagement.

We look forward to collaborating with new school partners during the spring session and beyond.  To find out more about how your school can partner with SLP, contact us.  And if you haven’t done so already, please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram so we can share the amazing work of our students.
