Alessandra Tantawi with Row New York


Alessandra worked with Row New York to develop a resource guide that provides a breakdown of the high school application process in New York City. She developed two workshops about the high school application process. One workshop is a High School Bootcamp, which has a panel of high school faculty members and high school students to respond to questions of rising ninth graders. The second workshop is Row’d to High School that is to provide information and support to rising ninth graders in their high school choice. Alessandra developed and facilitated a girls empowerment group for middle schoolers over the summer.
