Brooklyn, N.Y. – Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus is set to launch the fall session of the Liberty Partnerships Program, a free after-school program for high school juniors and seniors. The program runs Monday, September 26, 2011 through Friday, June 1, 2011 and has open enrollment.

Liberty Partnerships Program activities include basic and advanced academic skills tutoring, wellness and lifestyle management, educational, personal and family counseling and career and college exploration activities. This year, LPP students will have access to the Bedford-Stuyvesant YMCA, where they will participate in civic engagement workshops and recreational activity.
"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 at the Brooklyn Campus. "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 Partnerships 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.

For more information or to enroll a student, contact Liberty Partnerships Program Director Roland H. Robinson at (718) 488-3399.
