D'Abate Community School

Led by Brown University’s Swearer Center for Public Service, teachers and administrators from the D’Abate Elementary School in Olneyville partnered with staff and students from Brown to develop and staff an after-school program that provides extra academic activities for children from households that earn less than $30,000 a year.  The program involves over 200 elementary students and over 150 Brown students through the school year as well as a five-week summer session.  The Rhode Island Department of Education approved a new three-year grant that allocates more than $400,000 to continue the program.
