Bright futures start at Educational Alliance. This is our purpose. In our early childhood and afterschool programs and camps, young people find a nurturing place where they can visualize a bright future for themselves as they learn, explore, and grow. For parents, our programs provide useful resources and a supportive network as they navigate the challenges and triumphs of raising children while pursuing their own educational and career goals. Community members have a place to strengthen their muscles with physical activity and nourish their bodies with healthy food. Older adults stay independent, healthy, and connected in our community centers and in their homes so that aging is a journey they take as part of a community, not in isolation. For others, a bright future means achieving and maintaining sobriety, reconnecting with family and friends, securing employment, learning English, and becoming an American citizen. For artists—amateur and professional; young and old—it means that there is time, space, and inspiration to discover and develop their own creative voices and showcase their work.
Each one of the 50,000 New Yorkers we serve—from infants to older adults from the Lower East Side and East Village—has infinite potential. At Educational Alliance, we celebrate that potential and provide the foundation upon which individuals can build the bright futures they envision for themselves, for their families, and for their community.
