Commonpoint Queens partners with Queens Academy High School to offer a plethora of support services and programming to students, families, and the greater community. Our Community School team works closely with the school to offer school wide programming, attendance interventions, mental health counseling, community service opportunities, mentoring and field trips. Our goal is to increase attendance, school participation and strengthen the sense of belonging and community. Some programming includes; SEDOS, a basketball team, a baseball team, professional developments for school staff, and college access workshops and individual support for all grades. Another programs offered is the Learn To Work (LTW) program, funded through our partnership with the DOE and works with the entire student body to help foster individual growth and pathways to graduation and post secondary placement.

Learn to Work Program
The Learn To Work (LTW) program is our division’s newest program located at a NYC DOE transfer school, Queens Academy. LTW is funded through our partnership with the DOE and works with the entire student body to help foster individual growth and pathways to graduation and post secondary placement.
Our program design includes two specific tracks for students to engage in- a post secondary track and a work readiness track. Each track works to meet the needs and presents barriers each student faces that has prevented them from reaching their full potential. Students engage in weekly psycho-educational workshops twice per week as well as individual sessions as needed with their designated LTW counselor.
Participants on the college pathway receive individualized sessions as well as group sessions catering to the application process, financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Our work readiness track prepares our participants for job placement and each student who completes the required workshop series and reaches their attendance goal is eligible for an LTW internship.
In addition, our team works closely with all school staff and CBO partners to improve school culture and attendance.
