SGES visits Grace Outreach’s South Bronx location.

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

SGES travels to the South Bronx to see Grace Outreach’s operations during an active school day.  We meet the administrative staff, the teachers, the new Executive Director, Andrew Rubinson, and experience an actual class in progress.   We learn how the young women became aware of the school and its programs and how committed the students have to be to stay in the program. 

It is apparent that Grace Outreach is very special and that Susan Goldberg Executive Search Consulting wants to support the organization. Besides donating a small percentage of every fee that SGES receives to the non-profit, we envision other initiatives that would help the organization.  We would like to be able to create awareness for the organization, speak with the women who attend the program, have some of our corporate clients be role models for the women by speaking with them at the school, and perhaps even have corporate clients organize field trips for some of the students to visit their offices in an effort to expand the young women’s horizons and knowledge outside the classroom setting.
