Partnership with Children Staff is New Yorker of the Week!
We are thrilled to share that Partnership with Children’s Program Director George Lavezzary, LMSW, has just been named New Yorker of the Week by NY1 News. In fact, he is “a superhero,” according to one of the students interviewed.
To see the NY1 feature and to learn how George helps “students overcome life’s barriers to learning”, please click here.
“How are kids supposed to sit in a classroom and concentrate when they’re living in a shelter or they’re constantly relocating? I don’t think they’ll be able to,” George told NY1. “So we help provide some skills to be able to cope with those things.”
George oversees our work in over 30 schools. Partnership with Children works in New York City’s highest-need communities to provide critical social and emotional supports for the hardest-to-reach youth and to systematically build schools that are safe, successful and conducive to learning.
Congratulations to George on this well-deserved recognition.
