We welcomed a new Learning to Work partner into the Mission Society family last year - ELLIS Preparatory Academy, where we enrolled over 300 new students in our comprehensive academic and career development programs.



“I’m excited to be part of an organization that recognizes students are smart, insightful, and have big dreams, and that we help them achieve those dreams.”

– Nanda Prabhakar, Senior Vice President of Program Operations


In 2019-20, our Learning to Work program served nearly 1,900 over-age and under credited students across seven transfer public high schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.


318 Mission Society students joined our paid internship program, making a total of $983,379 as they worked alongside professionals in their fields of interest.


We provided 1,900 mentorship hours, as well as career development opportunities - like one-of-a-kind tours - to give students insight into the variety of professions within their reach post-graduation.


Our team of educators offered college counselling and application advice, worked alongside 370 students on community service projects throughout the city, and helped students navigate self-care and stress management during an unprecedented year.


1,300 elementary school students participated in Power Academy, developing valuable literacy, STEM, and social and emotional skills through our afterschool and summer academic enrichment programs.


92% of Mission Society students indicated they were stronger readers after their year in Power Academy, with LitUp! and Pages to Stages curricula helping them strengthen their literacy skills through fun, interactive activities.


We helped students across the city build their own personal libraries with the donation of over 4,000 books, working with inspiring partners & Mission Society community members to give the gift of imagination.


15,000 hours of STEM education took place during 2019-20 through our Innovation Station program, fostering young engineers and cultivating a passion for these increasingly important subjects.


PASE Setters 2020-CarmenRosario-0023-Hig

“I believe that everyone is capable of doing whatever they want to do. My guiding principle is ‘how can I make this better?'”

– Carmen Rosario,

Program Director, PS 192

Mission Society educator, Carmen Rosario, was given a 2020 PASEsetter Award on February 25 in recognition of her hard work over the past 15 years - furthering the field of afterschool programming, encouraging the academic, social-emotional, and creative development of her students, and serving as a role-model for our community.

Under the mentorship of the American Planning Association (APA) and Nate Heffron, ELLIS students shared their proposal for the expansion of the BX9 bus route with urban planning professionals throughout the year. At the end of 2020, the project was one of six to receive the William H. Whyte Award for Creativity and Ingenuity in the field of planning from the New York Metro Chapter of the APA.



The COVID-19 crisis had a profound impact on the Mission Society community - especially the 75% of families living below the poverty line that benefit from our programs. The onset of the pandemic required us to adapt, and ensure our offerings reflected the needs of each student and parent. Over the course of 2020, the Mission Society:


Established an Emergency Relief Fund with the help of our community, providing 258 care packages of essential household items, delivering 262 warm meals, and distributing $64,300 in cash assistance to families in need.


Launched a Distance Learning Library, with STEM, literacy, and physical fitness activities for our K-8 students, curated by Mission Society educators.

Facilitated a seven-week Summer LearnIN program in partnership with Scholastic Inc., BOKS Kids, & Weeks Lerman, sending reading, art supplies, workbooks, and a weekly newsletter to 750 students.

Ensured high school students received much-needed technology for remote learning at the onset of school closures through the work of dedicated Mission Champions.
