Emergenetics in New York City!
I am sure some of you are wondering where I have been. For starters, we were quite privileged just prior to Christmas to have four workshops. If you couple this with year-end reports, etc. and a two week vacation for me, well, there you have it.
The New Year has gotten off to a fast start. Last week we presented the workshop, Lead Different, to the faculty and staff of Central High School in Phenix City, Alabama.
AND, just yesterday, I returned from New York City. What an incredible three days and two nights.
On Tuesday of this week, I was fortunate to present an Emergenetics workshop to CFY-NYC. Forty-three energetic and highly intelligent employees participated in the all day workshop. I had a blast!
According to the organization’s website, CFY-New York City has been providing services to New York City families for more than a decade and has served over 25,000 families to date. During the 2010-2011 academic year, CFY-NYC underwent significant expansion and now serves over 8,000 families a year. A key driver of this growth is CFY’s receipt of one of the largest U.S. Department of Commerce grants for the “Substantial Broadband Adoption” portion of the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). CFY-NYC partners with low-income schools, both traditional and charter, to help students, families, and teachers harness the power of digital learning to improve educational outcomes.
