Counseling in Schools

Our Vision

We envision a New York City where children grow up in thriving neighborhoods, and 
all individuals and families can build on their strengths to realize their fullest potential.


Our Mission

Counseling in Schools goes where children, youth, and families face the greatest 
challenges and builds on their strengths to help them gain skills for success. We provide 
quality, effective services that deepen connections between family members, within schools, and among neighbors. We work closely with community leaders to advocate, both locally and nationally, on behalf of our participants to make New York City a better place to live and work.

Counseling in Schools leads in the development of innovative programs that make 
a difference in the lives of children, youth and families today.
