Deputy Director Adriana Villavicencio will participate in a workshop about New York City’s Expanded Success Initiative at the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color’s Annual Gathering of Leaders on Thursday, May 19th in NYC.

Members of the NYC Department of Education’s ESI leadership team will also participate in the workshop, sharing additional information about the initiative’s efforts to increase college and career readiness among Black and Latino young men ready.
