New York City

Headquartered in New York City, Turnaround is proud of its 17-year history of supportive and productive partnerships with schools across Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx.

During the 2017-18 school year, we are partnering with 6 schools across two boroughs, serving more than 2,400 students and nearly 400 educators.

  • 4 out of 5 New York City partner schools showed positive gains in emotional support
  • 94% of students referred for mental health services were seen within 30 days
  • Teachers in all New York City partner schools demonstrated increased willingness to take on a mastery approach - focusing on students' progress over time instead of their performance against peers

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.
