Brooklyn, N.Y. – Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus is set to launch the fall session of the Liberty Partnership Program, a free after-school program for high school juniors and seniors. The program runs Monday, September 20, 2010 through Thursday, June 2, 2011 and has open enrollment.
Liberty Partnership Program activities include basic and advanced academic skills tutoring, wellness and lifestyle management, educational, personal and family counseling and career and college exploration activities. All activities take place after school on campus grounds.
“We believe students can achieve academic success if they are provided support, information and encouragement,” said Kim Williams Clark, Dean of Institutional Advancement and Student Affairs. “Our hope is that students will be motivated to complete their education and seek entry into post-secondary education.”
The program is funded by the New York State Education Department and is open to Brooklyn residents. Teachers, counselors and families can recommend students for the program, though applicants must have parental consent.
The Liberty Partnership Program is presented by Long Island University’s Office of Institutional Advancement and Student Affairs in collaboration with the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the School of Business, Public Administration and Information Science.
