Urban Dove’s transfer high schools in Brooklyn and the Bronx deploy a sports-based model that allows students who haven’t succeeded in traditional high school settings to thrive.
MFF Funding supports UD’s Junior Pathways, a three-year program that facilitates the professional growth of all entry-level team members working at Urban Dove, several of whom are recent UD graduates. This pilot initiative helps younger UD colleagues establish positive workplace habits and map out their school and career plans, while offering extra guidance, support, mentorship, and tuition reimbursement.
“So far, this program has impacted my attitude when I come in to work and how to properly interact with students. Ever since I started in the Juniors program, I do see a difference in myself everyday.”
