For the first time Partnership with Children will have 5 volunteers running the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon in November to raise funds and awareness for the organization. Founded in 1908, Partnership with Children has worked for over a century to strengthen the emotional, social, and cognitive skills of vulnerable children in New York City to help them succeed in school, society, and life.
Partnership with Children works in schools in high-poverty communities in New York City, providing critical social-emotional learning programs and mental health services for the hardest-to-reach students, and engaging families in the school community. Our professional Masters-level social workers and licensed Mental Health Clinicians work with students, teachers, administrators and parents to implement a framework of sustainable practices that creates a circle of support around each student. By addressing the social and emotional challenges that undermine achievement, our services lead to increased attendance, improved academic outcomes, better student behavior, improved school climate, and more effective teaching.
We work as integrated service providers and leaders. We provide a consistent, nurturing adult presence and systems building in schools. In short, we make schools safer and better places to learn so that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
As Team PWC runs 26.2 miles across the 5 boroughs and throughout the communities we serve they will not only be crossing the finish line for themselves, but advocating for more than 10,000 children the agency serves each year through Individual Counseling; Small-Group Counseling; Family and Parent Engagement; and Classroom-Wide Support.
