About Liberty LEADS

Bank Street's Liberty LEADS program strives to break the cycle of poverty for inner city youth by providing academic, social and emotional support. Liberty LEADS is guided by the principle that all children have gifts, talents and great potential, and can contribute to one another's social and academic growth.

Liberty LEADS offers all students a comprehensive support system based on ongoing relationships with caring adults who give every young person consistent and individual attention.

More than 240 young people in the 5th through 12th grades participate in our program. Students have access to a wide range of academic, college prep, counseling, mentoring and enrichment resources.
