The Bronx Project: Making a Difference

The Graduate School of Education (GSE) is committed to building and developing partnerships with schools in the New York educational community, as well as to making a difference in the lives of children by meeting their needs in environments where they feel safe and comfortable. The Bronx Project is just one example of the ways in which GSE lives up to this mission every day.

Initiated in 1997 by GSE, and affiliated with the Rosa A. Hagin School Consultation &Early Childhood Centers, The Bronx Project provides a variety of psychoeducational services to at-risk and underserved students on Catholic elementary schools in the South Bronx and Harlem.

Services have included (but are not restricted to):

Screening and assessment of learning difficulties
Direct individual and group counseling
Crisis intervention
Academic remediation
Parenting skills training
Teacher and parent consultation

All services are provided by externs from GSE’s school psychology program, under the direct supervision of licensed psychologists. More than 140 students from seven schools in the Association for South Bronx Catholic Schools (ASBCS) and in Harlem receive interventions from GSE externs each year.

The Bronx Project has received more than $1.3 million in funding, and has helped more than 2,300 children and adolescents in need to date.
