Encouraging People Of All Ages To Succeed As Learners

Education is at the heart of Union Settlement’s work in East Harlem.  We empower the people of our community to build the skills necessary to achieve their dreams through classes, tutoring and training programs.

Our early childhood education program provides a rich and engaging curriculum that supports cognitive, emotional, and physical development. As the 10th largest child care provider in New York City, we serve over 720 children every year.

Our Adult Education programs support people who seek to change their lives through education. Our students learn English, prepare to take the High School Equivalency exam, and train for the workforce.  Every step is bolstered with digital literacy training.

Seniors who attend our centers enjoy access to computer classes, museum trips with lectures on special exhibits, weekly classes on nutrition, and more.  East Harlem seniors can also join the Intergenerational Tutoring Program and develop literacy skills among elementary school children at risk of falling behind.
