CHILDREN AND LEGACY
After graduating from our elementary and middle schools, The Legacy Network serves as the catalyst for our student's continuing success in high school and college. The program provides mentoring, academic enrichment and a supportive social network to help our graduates make the critical transition to high school, college, and career.
Throughout a student's high school career, the Legacy Network provides academic enrichment through Scholar Academies in mathematics and English language arts, SAT preparation, tutoring, mentoring, college trips, and grade- level guidance advisories. Our students are also introduced to career exploration via corporate mentoring programs and internships. Each year, forty high school and college students participate in our paid Summer Internship Program. Our students have participated in internships with organizations such as Prospect Park Zoo, Beth Israel Medical Center, American Civil Liberties Union, Flatbush Development Corporation, Columbia University Office of Diversity, and in the City Council Offices of Jumaane Williams and Letitia James.
The support we provide has helped our alumni excel at competitive secondary schools such as Brooklyn Technical, Millennium, Brooklyn Latin, and Philips Academy Andover; and colleges and universities such as Harvard, Wesleyan, Fordham, Tufts, as well as the SUNY and CUNY schools.
