Mission:
GroupWORKS was founded to address the high dropout rate among educators in their first five years on the job. We recognize that a missing piece in the professional development of new educators is their preparation in group leadership and group dynamics. Providing them with the understanding of group process in schools and the skills to respond effectively to students, parents and colleagues in groups will enable new educators to channel their feelings into interventions which will foster greater academic success among students as well as greater cooperation among children and adults in the school community. In addition we use an Empowerment Model to address the needs of children and adults recovering from trauma and disaster.We have implemented this model in NYC public schools working with counselors, teachers and children in schools impacted on 9/11.
