Bring Bent On Learning To Your School
Bent On Learning was created to enhance the commendable job that New York City schoolteachers and administrators do every day with the minimal resources they have at their disposal.
We work with all schools that believe in our mission and do our best to subsidize the neediest schools; they’re the ones hit hardest by budget cuts and overcrowding, where children are economically disadvantaged or have special needs, and where many are now limited to a single gym class per week. Our program helps mitigate the situation by offering valuable physical activity to help support more children.
If you have any additional questions about bringing BOL to your school, please reach out to our Program Director, Kristen Lalka, at email@example.com or 917-545-8437.
