Effective School/CBO partnerships are the backbone of the NYC Community Schools initiative. At all stages, these partnerships require commitment from both sides and deep focus on student achievement. 

The National Center for Community Schools has outlined guiding principles of effective school/CBO partnerships, emphasizing the importance of collaboration, shared decision-making and clarity in how team members interact and work together. 

In addition to the partnerships with lead community-based organizations in schools, Community Schools also work with partners from city agencies, public-private partnerships, and third-party service providers.Click here for a full list of our partners.


The Office of Community Schools cultivates public and private sector partnerships and helps to identify resources and opportunities that may benefit Community Schools. Please review our list of current opportunities to locate previously publicized resources and contact Stephanie Saintilien for more information.
