Project with WHSAD at the Smallpox Hospital

We had the unique opportunity to visit the old Smallpox hospital on Roosevelt Island yesterday with the Williamsburg HS for Architecture and Design (WHSAD)! WHSAD, teacher Mr. Codio and his class are doing a long term project proposing a new design for the space. We are excited to be a small part of this very big and important initiative. The project needs your help! Please click on the link below for details. Spread the word! https://www.donorschoose.org/project/projecting-future-designs/2885309/ You can learn more about the space from www.theruin.org and @nycruin on instagram. We will keep you updated! #ruins #smallpoxhospitalruins #smallpoxhospital #healthforyouths #franklinroosevelt #fourfreedomspark #communityservice #publichealth #smallpox #rooseveltisland

HEALTH for Youths College Readiness Session – CSI STEP program – 11/18 – @conedison Con Edison sponsored program

Huge thank you to Dawn Baker for inviting us to do a college readiness for the family presentation at the College of Staten Island’s STEP program. “STEP is a Saturday enrichment program that services students from Staten Island in grades 7 through 12, who demonstrate an interest in and have a potential for a career in the fields of science, health, engineering, technology, and the licensed professions come to the College of Staten Island and engage in science, math, computers, communication arts, PSAT, SAT, and college prep with an interdisciplinary learning approach. The STEP Program focuses on helping students to build self-esteem and develop positive behaviors toward learning.” https://www.csi.cuny.edu/academics-and-research/specialized-programs/opportunity-diversity-programs/step

This program kicks off the expansion of our college readiness program thanks to a grant we received from Con Edison. Huge thank you to everyone at Con Edison for making programs like this possible. We look forward to continued programming around college readiness and the college application process.
