Powerful Youth for Powerful Communities
our mission

Groundwork helps neighbors build powerful communities. We identify small neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York -- typically public housing developments and the blocks that surround them -- and provide high-quality educational programs and support services to the families who live there.
join us

Whether you are a high school, college or graduate student, or a teacher, social worker, or youth development professional, Groundwork offers many opportunities to develop skills and earn money while improving the lives of Brooklyn youth. And by joining our AmeriCorps program, you can earn money for college while giving back to the community!
