Turnaround for Children translates neuroscientific research into tools and strategies for schools with high concentrations of students impacted by adversity, in order to accelerate healthy development and academic achievement.
Our hope is that one day all children in the United States will attend schools that prepare them for the lives they choose. To fulfill this promise, Turnaround is committed to creating evidence-based tools that work in high-risk settings as well as building awareness for and commitment to broader change.
During the 2016-17 school year, Turnaround for Children is partnering with 10 schools in New York City, Newark, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., serving more than 4,100 students and nearly 500 teachers and staff.
