Hello — I represent TASC, a nonprofit that partners low-income schools with community organizations to expand the learning day, making time for more and better learning. These community organizations include many settlement houses, including CAMBA, University Settlement, WHEDCo, East Side House, The Education Alliance, and Cypress Hills Local Developement Corp.

To give you a sampling of these partnerships in action, please see these blog posts:

We would like to invite you to visit one of these schools this fall to see how the aforementioned settlement houses help to expand learning for the city’s most deserving kids.
