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.
The schools we work with are specially selected based on need; 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 this situation by offering valuable physical activity to help support more children.
