About this Grantee

To decrease social segregation, create an accepting school climate, and help close the achievement gap in their school, Ms. Goldberg and her partners implement a school-wide diversity program. Students examine their similarities and differences, express ideas for cooperative living, and participate in projects focusing on diversity themes. Staff mentors work with students on monthly community service projects to address a community need. The program culminates in a school-wide celebration of diversity.
