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.
