At P.S. 42, students, staff, parents, and community work together toward environmental and social awareness, empowerment, problem resolution, and school improvement. In this community of learners and ambitious workers, there are numerous collaborations between the school and community-based organizations and agencies, universities and cultural institutions in order to maximize knowledge and expertise and create an effective school.
P.S. 42 has been in a partnership for over 20 years with Junior Achievement, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. Junior Achievement’s programs—in the core content areas of work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy—ignite the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work and life in the 21st century. P.S. 42 is proud to be recognized for its collaboration with Junior Achievement of New York for 2018-2019.
