Center for Family Life at Sunset Park High School includes school day, after school, and summer services for young people in 9th – 12th grade. Our leadership focused program LINK & Step-Up (funded through our Learn and Earn contract with the DYCD) helps high school juniors and seniors transition to college, providing support with their application process, and workshops designed to prepare students for life after high school.
The other team worked in collaboration with Sunset Park High School’s Green Team to repair the outdoor raised garden beds and plant spring bulbs and seedlings. They also put together a guide, with helpful gardening tips and information about some of the flowers they planted.
The service learning month culminated with a field trip to the High Line and Little Island to see how spaces in the city have be repurposed into urban parks, and to celebrate all their hard work. We’re so proud of everything our students have put together, and we can’t wait to watch as their efforts and their flowers continue to bloom.
