Bronx Project

About the Project
Initiated in 1997 by Fordham's Graduate School of Education (GSE), and affiliated with The Centers, The Bronx Project provides a variety of psychoeducational services to at-risk and underserved students in Catholic elementary schools in the South Bronx and Harlem.

Services have included (but are not restricted to):
  • Screening and assessment of learning difficulties
  • Direct individual and group counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Academic remediation
  • Parenting skills training
  • Teacher and parent consultation
All services are provided by externs from GSE's school psychology program, under the direct supervision of licensed psychologists. More than 140 students from seven schools in the Association for South Bronx Catholic Schools (ASBCS) and in Harlem receive interventions from GSE externs each year.

The Bronx Project has received more than $1.3 million in funding, and has helped more than 2,350 children and adolescents in need to date.
