The TeamBuilders Program focuses on helping youth in grades 6-8 form supportive relationships with their peers, families and community members. Program components include participation in academic support activities, teambuilding and problem-solving initiatives as well as service-learning projects. All participants also play on a baseball or softball team. Youth also receive individual guidance and support in the New York City high school selection process, a key step in achieving high school success.

 

TeamBuilders goals:

  • Improve social and emotional skills
  • Improve academic skills and school attendance
  • Develop leadership skills, community awareness, and civic responsibility
  • Promote physical health

 

TeamBuilders currently operates out of East Harlem and the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx.
