VACCINATION & COMMUNITY RESOURCES >>
For the last fifteen years, CDI has connected students to the lab research assistant internship at The Rockefeller University’s Comparative Bio Science Center.
CDI is ushering in the fall with a wide range of post-secondary options for students! Our annual College and Career Fairs host up to 400 students, parents, and alumni.
CDI is committed to exposing students to a range of options for life after high school. It’s critical that we offer career exposure and preparation in tandem with college preparation services, because a traditional college pathway immediately following high school is not the only or best path for all young people.
Just because the long, lazy summer days have rolled around, doesn’t mean the action stops at CDI! Summer school and other college prep programs are running full speed ahead at our partner schools, including Summer Bridge Programs for incoming freshmen to College Prep and English Communication Classes for rising seniors.
Kimberly Espinoza, A 2019 High School for Health Professions and Human Services graduate was awarded a full, four-year scholarship to attend Columbia University this year. We spoke to her about her wonderful achievement, her experience with CDI, her favorite books and more!
Thanks to CDI board members Jackie Krese and Sovonna Day-Goins, 30 members of our schools’ Young Women’s & Men’s Leadership Groups took part in a career exploration event on May 9th at Credit Suisse.
On May 1st over 400 students from CDI’s three partner schools joined seniors across New York City in committing to a future in higher education, during Decision Day – NYC Public Schools’ annual citywide celebration in honor of the City’s college-bound high school seniors.
Noah Sorensen, class of 2018 at City-As-School, is now in his second semester at SUNY Delhi majoring in Residential Construction. In the Delhi program his time is split between the classroom and the job site where he’s learning how to build a house from the ground up.
CDI and our partner school City-As-School (CAS), a New York City public transfer high school, are working together to prepare our students for life after high school with hands-on experiences. CAS serves older, under-credited students who spend half their week in the classroom and the other half in internships across the city.
