EVENT DATE: MAY 03, 2015
Partnership with Children (PwC) is a Charity Partner for the 2015 TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour. Our team members will be riding to strengthen the emotional, social and academic skills of at-risk children and to help them succeed in school, society, and life.
Held annually the first Sunday in May, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is America’s largest cycling event. The event provides participants the unique and fun experience to bike through all five boroughs – a 40 mile, traffic-free ride for 32,000 cyclists. Beginning just north of Battery Park, the tour runs up Manhattan, through Central Park, around a brief loop in the Bronx and down to the Queensboro Bridge, passing countless New York City landmarks on the way. After a ride over the Pulaski Bridge, passing through Brooklyn, riders enjoy an incredible view from the lower deck of the Verrazano Bridge to finish the tour.

Working with over 17,000 students in over 40 schools, our program transforms schools into safe, supportive learning environments; increases attendance; and improves academic performance of the hardest-to-reach children.

OUR MISSION IS TO STRENGTHEN THE EMOTIONAL, SOCIAL, AND COGNITIVE SKILLS OF AT-RISK CHILDREN SO THAT THEY CAN SUCCEED IN SCHOOL, IN SOCIETY, AND IN LIFE.

In the effort to reform our public schools — arguably our country’s most critical challenge — Partnership with Children is truly making a difference. Our program changes the trajectory of our students’ lives, their families’ lives, and entire communities…by changing the climate of our city’s highest poverty schools.
Partnership with Children brings teams of Master’s level social workers into the most underserved public schools to provide counseling and classroom interventions for students at the highest risk of academic failure and school dropout. We work with students, families, teachers, school support staff, and the surrounding communities to ensure that students arrive to school each day ready to learn — and that schools are safe, supportive, and conducive to learning.
Partnership with Children’s model is based on decades of experience, careful evaluation, and trailblazing in the field of Social and Emotional and Learning (SEL), which develops specific skills crucial to a child’s academic, personal, social, and civic development. Our program increases student attendance and on-task behavior, improves teachers’ classroom management skills, reduces school violence and suspensions, engages families in their children’s education, and allows principals to spend less time on discipline and more time on academic instruction, ultimately changing the culture of the school. Moreover, our student-centered curricula are aligned with the Common Core, CASEL’s social and emotional five domains and competencies, and New York City’s SEL standards.
Partnership with Children was most recently featured on American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen, a special broadcast by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting highlighting successful drop-out prevention efforts.
Our mission (as critical today as it was at our founding in 1908) is to help children growing up in poverty to succeed academically, emotionally, and socially. We are proud to partner with the New York City Department of Education, the Robin Hood Foundation, the United Way, the Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, FEMA, Mayor Bloomberg’s Interagency Task Force on Truancy, Chronic Absenteeism and School Engagement, and other generous funders to serve young people from elementary through high school, in all five boroughs of New York City.
