For more than 100 years, Partnership with Children has supported the most vulnerable children in overcoming the stress of growing up in poverty. Today, through our school-based programs across the five boroughs, we fortify the cognitive, academic, and emotional resources of 30,000 students, leveraging the latest neuroscience and adapting our work to meet each school and child's unique challenges we serve. Our comprehensive model ensures that children have the opportunity to reach their full potential and to succeed in school, society, and life.

Bronx Connect



Bronx Connect was birthed by the youth organization Urban Youth Alliance. The mother of Urban Youth Alliance, Rev. Faith Brown, loved New York City. She loved the drug addict, she loved the gang member, and she deeply loved the inner city. The Urban Youth Alliance's roots began on Fox Street in 1970, where drug addiction was prolific. In 1999 when Public/Private Ventures asked to create a program that brought the strength of the urban church to the epidemic of youth incarceration, the Board of UYA looked to its roots and responded, “of course.”
