The G.O.O.D. Project
The Growing Our Own Doctors (G.O.O.D.) Project is one of the CUNY School of Medicine’s pipeline programs. This initiative is intended to support and improve the educational and health outcomes of Harlem’s children. The G.O.O.D. project is housed at A. Philip Randolph Campus High School and includes a summer program entitled, Bridges to College and Career Success. This summer over 70 incoming ninth grade students took part in a six-week program designed to introduce them to the health care field as a profession, combat summer learning loss, and encourage academic achievement.
On Wednesday August 16th at 6 PM A. Philip Randolph Campus High School (APRCHS) held a culminating event for the Summer Bridge program so that parents, family, and friends could hear the students talk about their experiences during the summer. The APRCHS community was thrilled that Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewerwas able to come out to support the event and the G.O.O.D. Project. APRCHS is very proud of our young scholars from the class of 2021 and we cannot wait to see how they distinguish themselves next year. Students who graduated from the Bridges to College and Career Success program this summer will continue their work with the G.O.O.D, program next year as they participate in the new Peer Group Connection Mentoring program that kicks off in October.
