Last week, the NY Metro Popular Team from Popular Community Bank made a special visit to Publicolor “Next Steps Prep” Summer Program at the Pratt Institute Campus in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
The mission of Publicolor is to engage underserved students in their education and to catalyze change by empowering them and other residents of inner city communities to transform their environments through the power of color and collaboration.Popular Community Bank has been partnered with Publicolor since 2008.
Their “Next Steps Prep” is a summer academic enrichment program for over 60 students between 7th and 12th grade. It includes literacy immersion, SAT prep and is held on a college campus.
