Browning and Mott Haven Academy Charter School partnership

New York

Robert seeks to create a partnership between The Browning School and Mott Haven Academy Charter School, which prioritizes admission to children involved in the child welfare system. Robert will use the prize to help Mott Haven purchase sports uniforms and equipment for all of its teams, school supplies to address everyday needs, and setting up opportunities for collaboration on different sports, art, chess and after­school programs.

Updates from Robert

July, 2019
Hello, Riley’s Way community! My name is Robert Michaelson, and I am a rising senior at the Browning School. Recently, I was one of the recipients of the Call for Kindness grant. I will be strengthening the relationship with my school, the Browning School, and Mott Haven Academy, a charter school that “believes every child can learn and achieve regardless of life circumstances.” Over the past couple of weeks, I have been reflecting on the mission and values of Browning, Mott Haven, and Riley’s way to develop meaningful programming. All institutions believe in the power of student leaders to make powerful change through building connections with others and treating people with kindness. Together, I believe our programming will further the idea that students can be successful and caring leaders despite the circumstances they may face. I have begun looking at calendars and reaching out to various individuals to begin planning events and programs and look forward to checking back this summer!
