New York City

Headquartered in New York City, Turnaround is proud of its 16-year history of supportive and productive partnerships with schools across Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx.

Turnaround’s first school partnership was a pilot program with P.S. 132 in Washington Heights, one of the lowest-performing elementary schools in the city. During the 2016-17 school year, we are partnering with five schools across two boroughs, serving nearly 2,700 students and more than 260 teachers and staff.

  • From 2015-2016, students in 5 out of 6 partner schools reported a maintained or increased sense of physical safety
  • According to trained observers using the Classroom Assessment According System (CLASS), 47% of teachers at Young Voices Academy scored in the high range for emotional support, up from 17% the previous year

I love being a part of something larger that makes a difference in the lives of children. While my work is challenging, it is incredibly rewarding and I have the opportunity to work with great people.
