The LEGO Foundation
The power of learning through play
The LEGO Foundation believes that we can advance a more inclusive education and lifelong learning opportunity for all, by enhancing children’s holistic development and playful experiences throughout childhood.
Funding from the LEGO Foundation is helping City Year deepen training for AmeriCorps members to support social and emotional learning, and address pandemic-related trauma and learning disruptions. The partnership also enables City Year to expand its services in New York and lay the groundwork for more communities in California and elsewhere to adapt the student success coach model. By working together, the LEGO Foundation and City Year can accelerate efforts to advance educational equity, particularly in school districts serving families disproportionately affected by the pandemic.
