New Dawn is a transfer high school located in Brooklyn, New York and we are currently looking for a NYSED certified counselor, able to conduct mandated counseling with a focus on attendance.  As a transfer school we serve some of the most at-risk students in NYC those who are over-aged and under-credited. We invite people to apply who are motivated by a challenge and are capable of navigating some of the most challenging learning issues in the City.
