School-Community Partnerships - Joining forces to support the learning and development of all students

The Aspen Institute Case Study on Partnerships in Education

SSN is one of four communities nationwide featured in The Aspen Institute National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development’s recent report. Evidence shows academic and social emotional learning must happen together, and others are looking to SSN as a model of how to build partnerships that get us there.

SSN as Innovator in Researcher-Practitioner-Youth Partnerships

Our partnership with Research Alliance has been featured in EdWeek! Two blog posts highlight our revolutionary approach to research that is built on a true partnership between researchers, practitioners, and youth, with a goal of generating truly actionable research.

Youth-Adult Partnerships

We’re strengthening partnerships, starting dialogues, and amplifying diverse voices in our work.

Our youth partners are a driving force of change across NYC. iMentor, Hudson River Community Sailing, Community of Unity, SEO Scholars, Sadie Nash Leadership Project, One Goal, and Union Settlement have been leading the network in exemplifying youth-adult partnership.

Staff from these organizations are committed to consistently partnering with youth to lead change and innovation.

By putting youth in the driver’s seat, organizations are cultivating a culture that challenges decision making structures and engages youth as the primary stakeholders of their education.

Our Blog

Check out SSN’s website blog, a space for staff, members, and partners to share insights, resources, and big questions. Educators, practitioners, researchers, and lifelong learners can read about how we’re diving into challenging but promising paths on our journey to broaden and deepen student success.
