About Us

The GO Project levels the playing field for under-resourced and low-income public school students in New York City who are performing below grade level at the earliest stages of development. For more than five decades, GO has equipped thousands of children with the confidence and skills needed to make academic gains, perform at or above grade level, enroll in high-performing middle and high schools, graduate on time, and achieve college success. By harnessing New York’s physical, financial, and intellectual resources, GO has grown into a $3.3 million organization serving 725 students in grades K-8 across six campuses in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. 


The GO Project was named one of the most effective summer program models in the United States by the National Summer Learning Association, highlighted as an effective out-of-school time program as part of American Graduate Day on PBS, and recognized for its outstanding board leadership as a finalist for the Brooke W. Mahoney Award, among other distinctions. Learn more about the organization at www.goprojectnyc.org.
