Educare PASS Program for Foster kids
During the implementation of Brienza’s Educare Program in NYC, our organization became keenly aware of some frightening statistics regarding children in foster care. For this reason, Educare founded the Program for Academic and Social Success or PASS. This program is implemented under the funds raised by Educare.
Educare’s program has been successful in improving academic outcomes for participating students. Yet we found that a lack of a presence of supportive adults to provide council, mentoring and assistance to foster kids, hinders their success later in life.
Community Based Organization Partnerships
Brienza’s Educare, acknowledges that there are currently many state program, religious organizations, and other non-for profit entities that have many great resources and aid that provide support to foster kids.
Our organization feels that as an Academic Solutions organization we can combine some of the best components of other programs and create a unique model that will ensure academic success. Crafted to the specific circumstances, the model will establish a support system that can propel our participants to a future with the right tools for their own success.
Supporting Learning through Individualized Instruction
Brienza’s draws upon a wealth of leading-edge curricula and diagnostic procedures to effectively deliver individualized instruction to all students. Our objective is to support and extend student learning so that students may:
- Reach high standards
- Enjoy high self-esteem, and
- Become significant contributors to the community
Brienza’s professional development services, which include mentoring, guide educators in providing:
- Effective teaching and learning
- An appreciation of all students and their learning needs, as well as
- The use of best practices in teaching and assessment
And an Execution Plan
Brienza’s demonstrates a clear and precise plan of execution of all educational services offered, including but not limited to professional development and supplemental academic interventions. Examples include:
- The SONYC program in NYC, is a collaboration wherein Brienza’s Educare provides after-school programs to schools in which we offer recreational, educational and social activities.
- CBO in which we have provided our high quality PD and Educational Support services is the NYC SONIC Program
Owned and Operated by Educators
Brienza’s is an organization that is owned and operated by educators, former principals, and assistant principals. The extensive background and knowledge of Brienza personnel is what allows the organization to provide such an array of services.
