The Northwest Bronx Community & Clergy Coalition (NWBCCC) is a 34 year-old broad-based, membership-driven grassroots organization that unites neighborhood organizations and congregations in joint efforts to improve the quality of life in the Northwest Bronx. The Coalition’s Education Committee is led by 10 core community leaders and 50 active members in campaigns focused on improving underperforming and overcrowded schools, improving school facilities and increasing school achievement. Hazen’s $30,000 grants in 2010 and 2011 will support the NWBCCC’s youth- and parent-led education organizing work to improve counseling, instruction student safety and reduce overcrowding in Northwest Bronx schools.
