The TEAK Fellowship believes that motivation and potential, not economic circumstances, should determine a student's future. TEAK unlocks access to outstanding education and transformative experiences for exceptional NYC students, who use these opportunities to change their lives and the world around them.

TEAK is a free program that helps talented students from low-income families achieve their potential. Through intensive after-school and summer classes, TEAK prepares middle school students to get into the nation's most selective high schools and colleges. TEAK's strong support system ensures that students thrive in their independent (day and boarding) high schools and graduate from college, ready to pursue their professional goals and positively impact the world.

Program Name: The TEAK Fellowship
Problem

Academic limitations, resulting from economic disadvantages, can permanently affect the course of young people's lives. Bright, motivated students living in under-resourced households and communities are routinely unchallenged and left with poor academic options. TEAK was created to reach these deserving students and offer educational access and opportunity. Through its Fellows, TEAK has the capacity to impact families, neighborhoods, and workforces -- a ripple effect that will shape our future.

Strategy

TEAK’s formula for success includes: Rigorous Academics: To help close academic gaps in education Guidance: Helps students select the best suited academic and social environments Professional Development: TEAK helps students build professional skills needed for success in the classroom and the workplace, thus paving the road for meaningful career advancement. Personal Growth: Through a set of diverse non academic opportunities, TEAK’s programs develop a well-rounded and civic-minded individual.

IF:THEN

IF TEAK is able to open doors for exceptional and highly-motivated students from low income communities to world class educational institutions, financial resources, network building opportunities, and transformational experiences...

THEN we believe that these students will be empowered to make disproportionate impacts on their communities, the workforce, and the world at large.
