CCNYPA Fordham University VISTA
Fordham University’s Center for Community Engaged Learning seeks to enhance our relationships with our community school partners through more deeply intentional and sustainable programmatic efforts that are co-created alongside community leaders. The VISTA will aid us in creating and enhancing our capacity for stronger partnership in ways that were previously unattainable due to financial and human resource constraints. Fordham has partnered with MHBX High School over the past year to support the expansion of their research and writing aspirations in conjunction with their International Baccalaureate Program. While we have only been able to be engaged with their 11th & 12th graders in the past, the development of this new program. The VISTA will create systems such as post-secondary and career curriculums to support 9th & 10th grade youth for a more consistent pathway of success that encompasses all four years of a MHBX student’s high school career.
