The Center brings together two Bank Street initiatives that have well-established records of efficacy over time. These initiatives originally served two constituencies through separate but interconnected programs. The first, the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP), began 17 years ago and has had tremendous success working with youth at risk of dropping out of high school.
The second program under the Center umbrella is known as I-LEAD (Institute for Leadership, Excellence and Academic Development). This program serves promising, high-achieving students at under-resourced schools and prepares them to become competitive applicants to selective colleges and universities.
Friends of the Children
Friends of the Children NY is a unique early intervention program dedicated to helping New York City´s most at-risk children become productive, contributing members of their community. We accomplish this by employing full-time mentors, called Friends, to work one-on-one with these children, beginning in kindergarten or first grade and maintaining that relationship through high school graduation.

* Working to expand high quality programs on the local, state and national level
* Developing a more educated, highly-skilled after-school workforce to promote superior programming for all kids.

Bell Curves works to make education accessible and affordable for all individuals, regardless of their socioeconomic background.
LINCOLN SQUARE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER
The vision that shaped Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center in 1949 also shaped the Settlement House movement begun over 100 years ago. Throughout this city, neighbors stood up and took responsibility for each other, working cooperatively to build networks or services to support and empower all who lived there. The result was a groundswell of neighborhoods where people could live safely, nurture their children, and participate in their own success. With an eye on this vision, we at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center have for over 57 years pursued our Mission of meeting the social, educational, recreational and cultural needs of the people of the West Side, particularly the residents of the Amsterdam Houses and the Addition which comprises 14 buildings spanning from 61st to 65th Streets and Amsterdam to West End Avenues. We accomplish this by meeting the emerging needs of our neighborhood by delivering programs and services to the over 2,700 individuals and 1,250 families-from pre-schoolers to seniors-who live and work in this community.
