Bushwick Leaders' High School has a deep relationship with several outside organizations. Each provides material support for our school community.
- East Brooklyn Congregations – EBC is the Brooklyn affiliate of Industrial Areas Foundation. It is a multi-denominational union of various congregations and community groups from all over Eastern Brooklyn. EBC was instrumental in the creation of our school and continues to be an active force in our school’s development. Additionally, EBC trains many members of our school community in community activism. EBC also hosts many of its events at our school. http://ebciaf.org/
- JPMorgan Chase – Frank Bisignano, the Chief Administrator of JPMorgan Chase was our “Principal for a Day” in the fall of 2006. Since then, he has committed a wealth of his corporation’s resources to the development of our school community. JPMorgan has been instrumental in modernizing our school’s computer technology, educating our parents and students about finance, and helping us to plan for and implement a grander vision for our school’s future.
- Good Shepherd Services – GSS, paid for by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, is a leading youth development, education and family service agency that serves over 20,000 program participants a year. We give vulnerable youth in New York City the opportunity to take ownership of their future, making a difference today and for the next generation. Focusing on high-need communities in Brooklyn and the Bronx, GSS provides a broad array of individual, family and school-based services to prevent youth from becoming disconnected from family, school and society. They also help those who come to them already disengaged find hope and motivation to reconnect with their community. http://www.goodshepherds.org/about.html
- Brooklyn Museum –Paid for by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, the Brooklyn Museum’s mission is to act as a bridge between the rich artistic heritage of world cultures, as embodied in the Museum's collections, and the unique experience of each visitor. Museum educators realize this mission by modeling a way of learning that helps K–12 students and teachers construct meaning by interacting with works of art. The Focus Unit program is designed for several teachers working together in one grade from one school. The program is comprised of a three-hour planning workshop at the Museum for all participating teachers as well as two Museum visits per class. Teachers and museum educators work together to choose the lessons that integrate most effectively in classroom curricula. Each school must assign a coordinator to oversee the collaboration. http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/education/schools/schools.php
- Noel Pointer Foundation – Supported by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, The Noel Pointer Foundation was established in 1995 as a not-for-profit corporation to create, manage and grow string music programs throughout the New York Metropolitan area. Its’ mission is to dramatically enrich our children's musical, cultural and academic experience, infusing them with a positive sense of who they are and a boundless sense of what they can become. http://www.npsom.org
- The New York City Writing Project- The goal of the NYCWP is to improve the teaching and learning of language and literacy in New York City public schools by increasing teachers' abilities to use writing as a tool for learning, thinking, and communicating. Through collaborations with teachers and schools, the NYCWP seeks to transform the ways in which writing and reading are perceived, taught, and evaluated in urban classrooms. http://www.lehman.cuny.edu/deanedu/litstudies/nycwriting.html
