Geared for Success

Geared for Success offers in-school counseling, group counseling, mentoring and student support services to enhance student school experience and to provide the tools needed for students to succeed!  Geared for Success fosters a positive team approach, which enhances cooperative working relationships amongst school personnel.

Geared for Success follows several key stages in order to ensure a flourishing, effective program at each partner school.

  • Phase 1

    Meeting between school and I’RAISE to understand the needs of the students and staff and learn the principal’s goals for the school in order to access how I’RAISE services can address stated needs.

  • Phase 2

    Exchange of key information between I’RAISE and the school to ensure both parties are clear on next steps, program deliverables, and team roles and expectations.

  • PHASE 3

    Program rollout including execution of services, school update meetings, parent update meetings, and staff trainings.

  • Phase 4

    In-depth review of the year’s program activities noting any successes, challenges to implementation, and areas of improvement for a stronger partnership going forward.


I'RAISE has partnered with New York City schools, such as PS/IS 178 to bring mentoring, tutoring, arts, and other programs to K-12 students. Principal Cooper discusses the impact of partnering with I'RAISE.

    The aim of this initiative is to improve student access to high-quality art programs and prepare students for art careers in college and beyond. The project will provide professional development workshops and college readiness to ninth and tenth-grade students. Students must meet selection criteria to qualify, including be registered at ASE, demonstrate an interest in one of the arts, and be low income.
