    1                               OUR MISSION        

    We are driving community transformation for children and families  in Astoria and Long Island City's concentrated pockets of poverty in zip codes 11101, 11102, and 11106.

     

     1                                OUR VISION          

    We want every child to graduate from high school prepared for college, and enter the workforce equipped with the skills needed to thrive in a 21st century world.
     

     1                          THE PROBLEM

    More than 20,000 families are living in concentrated pockets of poverty in Astoria and Long Island City. Over 8,000 are children. A child living in poverty faces multiple environmental, social, and physical barriers to academic success. Zone 126 exists to break down those barriers.

     

     1                            THE SOLUTION

    We are building Cradle-to-Career Community Schools to create a culture of shared responsibility for student success. Integrating supports for academics, health, parent education, youth and community development will lead to improved student achievement, increased parent involvement, and a healthier community.
