What We Do

Research-Based Mentoring
Where it Matters

Individual therapeutic mentoring

Individual therapeutic mentoring is the heart of our program. In individual mentoring sessions, mentees – with the guidance and support of their mentors – develop and achieve individualized goals and get support with navigating the many demands of middle school life.

Small group services

Built around the needs and interests of our young people, The Arthur Project has small after school groups that provide opportunities for growth and exploration, all while providing a safe, fun, and supportive environment to connect with peers.

Saturday Community based activities

Through their participation in carefully curated activities, the young people in our program explore the richness of New York City, all while developing essential life skills as they access opportunities that may not otherwise be available to them.

Whole family academic advocacy

In partnership with caregivers, Education Advocates through The Arthur Project support the strengthening of the whole family’s relationship to their student’s educational journey.
