We're raising money for the
fundraiser led by
New York, NY
Brooklyn Collaborative is a NYC Outward Bound School serving students in grades 6-12. We use the Expeditionary Learning school model, which has its roots in Outward Bound. Our school is a high needs school (Title I) with 72% of our students receiving free lunch. Additionally, 32% of our students receive special education services. Our website is www.bcs448.org - please check us out!
What I'm Raising Money For
Our students and teachers love fieldwork! Every other Thursday, we're out exploring the city, enriching and applying what we're studying in our classrooms. We model the authentic research of professionals in the field. Last year, our students visited 45 fieldwork sites in well-planned learning experiences and we had 24 experts come into our school! We're psyched to ramp up our fieldwork even more this year! That requires funding!
Why You Should Give
Brooklyn Collaborative has a 91% graduation rate and 100% college acceptance rate - significantly higher than other schools in NYC. That means our programming has great achievement outcomes for our students! Fieldwork sites and experts often have fees, we have to pay for additional chaperones for safety, and our teachers spend time and money planning extensive fieldwork experiences/journals/materials. Please support our fieldwork and give generously!
