Join our movement to build the next generation of leaders.

South Bronx Community ("SBC") opened its doors in 2016 to provide underserved students of the South Bronx with a path to post-secondary success. SBC promotes student excellence with its emphasis on academic and personal growth in a rigorous, yet highly responsive and adaptive learning environment.

A core part of the SBC model is the "Rites of Passage" experience, a four year learning journey that fosters leadership development, a sense of self-advocacy, confidence and preparation for the real world. As part of the program design, each academic year culminates in an excursion that builds critical mindsets and social/emotional skills through experience.

  • $25 supports our incoming freshmen with a Summer Bridge experience, which provides a sense of belonging at SBC.
  • $100 supports rising sophomores on an overnight camping trip, which fosters bonding and team leadership.
  • $250 supports rising juniors on their first overnight college tour, which includes visits to several campuses and early career mentoring to explore all their post-secondary options as they find the right "match" and "fit."
  • $500 supports our founding class of rising seniors as they participate in international service-learning and cultural immersion experiences, which leads to a deeper understanding of the world and of themselves, while supporting another community in need.

With each year of their four-year journey at SBC, our students develop a personal support network, receive meaningful early college exposure and engage in an enriching global service project. These experiences go beyond traditional classroom learning to ensure our young people build the skills necessary to be leaders in the future.
