The GO Project serves 550 students from over 30 public elementary & middle schools in Lower Manhattan and Chelsea. Instruction is targeted towards students who are academically under-performing (including students assigned IEPs as a result of a Learning Disability, Speech/Language Impairment, or Emotional Disturbance), come from under-resourced families, and attend under-served public schools.
At the GO Project, we address the needs of the whole child through integrated, year-round academic programs and family support services. By providing year round education and family services to academically challenged Kindergarten through 7th graders, GO educators, social workers and volunteers equip students with the confidence and skills they need to realize their potential and succeed at school, at home and in life. Through in-house holistic educational programming, alliances with top independent schools and educators, and strategic partnerships with the most effective social service institutions, GO aims to become the gold standard for narrowing the achievement gap among our city’s youth.
