The center and its programs and services are available to 3,000 schools within a two-hour radius of Syracuse with a potential reach of a minimum of 700,000 students in grades five through nine.
The program shows students more than any other program why they’re in school each day, learning about math, reading, writing, financial literacy, team work, critical thinking and citizenship.
This is applied, real-world learning, which gives students a unique glimpse of the adult world we’re readying them for – and why, staying in school and giving their best, is so important.
