THE CHALLENGE

More than 20,000 families are living in concentrated pockets of poverty in Astoria and Long Island City. Over 8,000 are children. A child living in poverty faces multiple environmental, social, and physical barriers to academic success. Zone 126 exists to break down those barriers.

THE SOLUTION

Build strong educational pipelines that close achievement gaps for Black, Latino and low-income students. Promote a culture of shared responsibility to change the learning ecosystem and direct resources towards student success.
