July 2021 Newsletter
With temperatures rising, vaccines readily available, a robust mayoral race narrowing, and the City reopening, Summer 2021 is proving to be a season for growth, energy, and renewal. Amidst the frenzy of activity, HERE to HERE is not simply “returning to normal,” but instead “striving for better.”
We all are welcoming interns again through the fully reinstated SYEP program, the Braided Pathways Fund RFP is out—building on the work of the Key Distinguishers Task Force, the Pathways to Prosperity NYC campaign is underway, and we’re taking lessons learned from SY2021 to help support schools in our High School Network deepen their commitment to work-based learning (WBL) in the coming school year. In the field, you all are doing amazing work as well. Lehman’s Bronx Recovery Corps is expanding and has inspired the creation of a Brooklyn Recovery Corps, and NYC DOE is making a new investment in WBL this summer.
We are excited to share all of this great news in this edition of our newsletter.

October 2020 Newsletter
Let’s commit to not returning to “normal” but to better—much better. The siloed systems of the past that once seemed so set in stone, and were always inequitable, are suddenly more malleable. Now is the time to think differently.
