2019 NYC School Reviews




Alternate Learning Center

"The Relationship Foundation's unique professional development training on empathy, expressing needs and feelings respectfully, and bringing into focus the importance of understanding the Adverse Childhood Experiences study (ACES), gives our schools tools to effectively cultivate beneficial life skills for our students. This significantly contributes to our ability to aid our students in building resilience in the face of adversity that they encounter both in and out of school."

- Principal Vincent DiGaetano, Bronx Alternate Learning Center


Samaratin Daytop Village

"I thank you and your team for being change agents for relationships. Human connection can be made difficult by our perceptions, insecurities and learned behaviors. Healthy Relationships 101 is truly a “Relationship Revolution” challenging us to think differently in all aspects of our relationships."

- Team Leader Trish Pennix, Samaratin Daytop Village

Northside Charter High School

Parents were very receptive to the facilitation and information, noting that they would be using these tools in their everyday life, not only with their child. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive, and I look forward to working with Mr. Jascz and his team in future to help our faculty and students unlock the secrets of real and effective communication to understanding.
