About LPP

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) was established in 1988 under Section 612, Subdivision 6 of the Education Law to address the significant dropout rate among New York's youth. The legislation states "the failure of many young New Yorkers to complete their secondary education limits their opportunity for a life of fulfillment, prevents them from advancing into postsecondary education and hinders the State's efforts to provide a well-trained workforce for business and industry in New York." This higher education initiative targets youth who have been identified as at risk for dropping out of school.

With over 47 projects throughout New York State, the Liberty Partnerships Program offers services to students and families to maximize the successful transition of middle and high school students into graduates who are fully prepared for the rigors of higher education and the competitive demands of the workplace. Through our Institutions of Higher Education, LPP offers strong school and community partnerships that deliver research-based programming to students enrolled in public and non-public schools that are identified as having a higher risk of students of dropping out of school. Some of the services that LPP funding covers include  case management; counseling/goal-setting; college, career explorations; pre-collegiate/workforce readiness programming; internships; cultural enrichment; recreation; and, parental involvement/support.
