We are thrilled that we will be partnering with Zone 126 this year, bringing the ENACT method into three Zone schools in Astoria and Long Island City. ENACT will be helping Zone 126 achieve this vision by sending our trained acting professionals into classrooms in three community schools – two elementary schools and one high school – where we will provide our signature workshops, along with professional development for school faculty and family workshops for parents and guardians.
The vision of Zone 126 is for every child to graduate from high school prepared for college and the 21st century world. Like the Zone, ENACT believes schools are central to the integration of academic, youth development, community and family empowerment.
This partnership is one of many we have with other organizations that share our values and the belief that young people are a community’s greatest asset. We are thrilled that after much discussion and planning, we will be implementing these programs in the 2015-16 school year!
