LEVEL UP

The Mission Society’s Level Up program serves over-age and under-credited students across seven transfer public high schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. Level Up addresses the education opportunity gap experienced in under-resourced communities, and alleviates barriers to high school graduation, attending college, and finding employment.

COLLEGE ACCESS

We actively support the pursuit of post-secondary education and increase college access by organizing college tours, as well as helping students navigate prerequisites, applications, and financial aid processes.

COUNSELING & SUPPORT

Social Workers provide weekly counseling hours and share referrals to critical services to address the important issues that impact students’ emotional health. We also create social groups, sports teams, and service learning programs to help students strengthen their emotional well-being.
