Unity is currently establishing formal partnerships with multiple community institutions to enrich the educational experiences of our students. Such partnerships include:
The Brooklyn Museum will partner with Unity in creating an after-school Young Curators and/or Young Artists club, which will meet three days a week during the school year as outlined the Museum’s letter of support.
Brooklyn Music School will provide exceptional music teachers and curriculum and offer instruction in four instruments to Unity students as an after-school music club.
Pratt Institute’s Department of Education may support Unity in designing curricula for our Design & Technology course and afternoon elective club in Art & Design. Moreover, Pratt’s undergraduate and/or graduate students may assist Unity faculty in the facilitation of the course and club.
Long Island University (LIU) will provide opportunities for promising graduate students/aspiring teachers to serve as teaching assistants and tutors. They will also host Unity upperclassmen on campus for college-related events and programs as well as offer opportunities for upperclassmen to take college-level courses at LIU.
YES! For Schools will provide instructors in the Youth Empowerment Seminar and will also conduct professional development for Unity’s teachers.
