Learning Leaders recruits, trains and supports 15,000 school volunteers who work with over 265,000 students — over one-fifth of the New York City public school population — in over 960 schools throughout the five boroughs. Founded in 1956 as the New York City School Volunteer Program, Learning Leaders was the first program of its kind in the country and served as a model for developing school volunteer programs in other major cities. Learning Leaders has grown to become the largest school volunteer and parent engagement program in the city and
a valued partner of the New York City Department of Education.
Learning Leaders' mission is to help New York City public school students succeed by training volunteers to provide individualized instructional support and other school-based support, and by equipping parents to foster their children's education development.
