Join us on May 19, 2021 at 7 p.m. ET as we honor three longtime champions of educational equity in New York.

 

NYC Outward Bound Schools is hosting its annual fundraising gala on May 19, 2021 at 7pm ET, and for the first time, this event will be held online. This year, we are honoring Richard Stopol, retiring CEO of NYC Outward Bound Schools; Dr. Lester Young, Jr., Chancellor of the NYC Board of Regents; and Hon. Mark Treyger, NYC Councilmember and Chair of the Education Committee.

Our student-led program will also recognize the dedication of our network’s teachers, principals, social workers, advisors and school counselors, who supported our students through an incredibly challenging year.

Help us reach $1 million in support of NYC’s schools and students!
