Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $44,717)

Many New York City public high school students attend failing schools and have inadequate opportunities to engage in positive activities during after-school hours. The Armory Foundation's College Prep Program provides student athletes from underserved backgrounds a supportive place where they are encouraged to remain on track and field teams, graduate from high school, and matriculate in college. The Armory Foundation serves 100,000 high school students annually. The Armory College Prep Program, an after-school enrichment program, provides up to 150 students a year with necessary college counseling and life coaching. This counseling builds on students' strengths, encourages improved attendance in school and encourages hope for their future through improved college acceptance rates. NCA/NCF
