Once you have taken the crucial steps of building your team and thoroughly examining conditions in your community, it is time to start planning your community school. While your vision statement may contain a broad outline of what you hope to achieve for children and families, your plan should talk about specifics.

In a perfect world, every child would be nurtured by a loving family, attend a challenging and exciting school and live in a supportive community. But the sad reality is that not every child has these opportunities.

Supporters and Partners

The comprehensive nature of the work in community schools requires a wide array of supporters and partners. Financing for community schools comes from public and private sources. Local partners include the New York City Department of Education and a variety of cultural and youth development organizations. National partners help us stay abreast of trends and work with like-minded colleagues to advance the community schools agenda across the country.

Even now, at age 45, this is one of David Giordano’s most prized memories: it was the All-Star basketball game at the Frederick Douglass Center. Spectators filled the stands; new red, white and blue nets waited for the first baskets of the night. The team’s star player tapped the ball to David, and he let it fly. "Nothin' but net," David thought, as the crowd roared its approval.

"I scored the first two points and my mom jumped and went all crazy," David says. "There was this kind of energy in the place that is still there today."
