Education is the cornerstone of personal growth and community development. At Catholic Charities New York, we firmly believe in the power of education to uplift individuals and empower communities. Through our comprehensive and transformative educational programming, we are making a lasting impact in the lives of children and families across New York.

Enriching Experiences:
Our educational programs provide enriching experiences that go beyond traditional classroom learning. From early childhood education to after-school programs, we offer a range of initiatives designed to foster the holistic development of children. By combining academic support with extracurricular activities, we nurture well-rounded individuals who are ready to take on the world.

Summer Rising:
One of our flagship initiatives is the Summer Rising program. During the summer months, when school is out, we ensure that children continue to have access to educational opportunities. Summer Rising offers a dynamic blend of academic enrichment, arts and culture, and recreational activities. It not only helps prevent summer learning loss but also encourages creativity, social interaction, and personal growth.

Supporting Families:
Education is a collaborative effort between schools, families, and the community. At Catholic Charities NY, we understand the importance of supporting families in their educational journey. Through our family engagement programs, we provide resources, workshops, and counseling services that empower parents and caregivers to actively participate in their child’s education. By strengthening family-school partnerships, we create a supportive environment for children’s education.

Beyond the Classroom:
Education extends beyond the confines of a classroom. We offer a wide range of educational services that address the diverse needs of our community. Our adult education programs equip individuals with the skills and knowledge necessary for career advancement and personal growth. Additionally, our immigrant and refugee services include English language classes and cultural orientation, ensuring newcomers have the tools to thrive in their new homes.

At Team Catholic Charities, education is at the heart of our mission to serve those in need and build a stronger community. Through our comprehensive educational programming, we are transforming lives, one individual at a time. We invite you to join us in our mission, whether it’s through volunteering, supporting our programs, or spreading awareness about the transformative power of education. Together, we can create a brighter future for all.
