How do we move forward? That seems to be one of today’s big questions. For New York City public school students denied access to resources and networks of opportunity due to zip code or family income, it’s the only question.
We believe the answer lies in a moment. A moment when a young person can say “this is what I’m capable of, this is what I can contribute, this is where I want my learning to take me.”
Because of you, Beam Center can make that moment happen everyday in NYC classrooms and communities.
It happens because our approach is human, hands-on and collaborative. It happens when our staff of fifteen uses real-world tools and techniques to re-imagine learning with students and teachers. It happens when our Teen Apprentices work as teachers sharing new skills and knowledge with kids in after-schools and summer camps.
The moment can’t happen without YOU.
Please help us expand and deepen our support for young people, where they live and where they learn. Together we can turn their moment into momentum. Thank you for your support.
