Cultivating the Healthcare Heroes of Tomorrow

How this toolkit was developed

This website was developed by Brooklyn College as part of an initiative to support young people from high schools in Brooklyn to forge a pathway to careers in healthcare.

The idea for the site grew out of focus groups with teachers, counselors and students at several Brooklyn high schools as well as planning meetings with representatives of Brooklyn College, Kingsborough Community College and Medgar Evers College.  

Brooklyn College is grateful for the support of the Caroll and Milton Petrie Foundation of New York. The site is a collaboration with Shared Lane, which provides services to schools and youth-facing organizations to prepare youth for the careers of their future.  Shared Lane is grateful for the support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York.  All content is the responsibility of Shared Lane.
