at the Robert F. Kennedy School
is hope for some emotionally disturbed students who have been
unsuccessful in mainstream educational environments. The Robert
F. Kennedy School, PS 169, helps remediate 160 such students,
many from economically disadvantaged homes. With specially trained
staff, small classes and supportive surroundings, the school can
help students to return to mainstream schools.
For 40 years, volunteers have provided support at PS 169, tutoring
students one-on-one. Along with organizing volunteers, the Friends
of PS 169 raises funds for children to attend a therapeutic summer
camp at Camp Ramapo Anchorage in Rheinbeck, NY.
