Summer 2021 Program of Project PRIZE

Summer 2021

June 10th, 2021

Dear Project PRIZE Parent,

I hope this message finds you and your family safe and healthy!

It is with great pleasure that we are sending this communication to let parents and students know that the Liberty Partnerships Program, Project PRIZE (LPP-PP) was able to coordinate and offer a virtual summer program this year, despite the disruption caused by COVID-19. The program will be online, and the programming has been data driven. It is including exclusively workshops and activities that parents, who completed the Project PRIZE Parent Summer 2020, indicated as desired for their children during the summer weeks.

The Program is scheduled to begin Tuesday, July 6th and end on Thursday, July 29th. Workshops and activities are scheduled for M-T-W and Th, 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Lunch is from 12:00 Noon to 12:30 p.m. Registration will start on June Monday, June 21st and will close on Wednesday, June 30th. First come, first served. Classes close as they fill.

Access the selection of workshops form. Please select one workshop in the morning, and one in the afternoon, for each day and submit. The workshops schedule is below.

New students are required to submit an application, consent form, and completed student survey, which will be accessed via links included on the copy of the schedule of workshops. Parents of children attending other than our Campus Magnet, George Washington Carver, and IS 192 partner schools are required to upload their last report card and transcript and state test scores. Students who have not submitted their children's academic records, will not be admitted or registered. There will not be registration on the first day of classes.

Students submitting incomplete schedules of workshops selected, will not be registered, therefore, please make sure that a workshop is selected for the am and the pm for each day.

Students are to log on to their workshops and activities promptly, and parents are to e-mail communication, if the student needs to be out any time, during the four weeks of the program. Students will be in a relaxed environment, but there should be consistent attendance, and they should be poised to actively participate in their selected workshops. It is highly recommended that children be on camera.

As always, we expect parents and students to reach out to us with questions, or if they have technical or any other difficulties, or special circumstances. Since we will be working remotely, I can be reached at Ynotalatif@qcc.cuny.edu.

Code of Conduct

It is the policy of the Board of Trustees of The City University of New York, CUNY and of Queensborough Community College, QCC, one of its constituent colleges, to recruit, employ, retain, and promote employees without regard to gender, age, national or ethnic origin, alienage or citizenship, race, color, creed, disability, marital or veteran’s status, or sexual orientation. For students, it is the policy of the University to recruit, admit, and provide educational programs, access to financial aid, support services and athletics without regard to gender, age, national or ethnic origin, alienage or citizenship, race, color, creed, disability, marital,  veteran’s status or sexual orientation.

QCC is committed to providing all students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation or harassment.

No student will be subjected to harassment by fellow students at the Liberty Partnerships Program-Project PRIZE LPP-PP because of race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender (including gender identity).

QCC has in place multiple programs and policies designed to help overcome barriers to equitable access including an active Office of Services for Students with Disabilities, which is experienced in enabling accessibility of classes, and out of class services for students with a wide range of physical, learning, and other disabilities.

Any questions or issues regarding preventing or responding to discrimination or harassment will be directed to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. The office of Student Affairs has adopted the Taylor and Barnes (2009) approach to conduct management, which approach calls for:

  1. A management program that is infused with conflict resolution pathways that are educationally based and meets institutions’ needs.

  2. The establishment of a climate where each individual is respected and also accepts their obligation to the campus community.

  3. Strict adherence to rules of moral, ethical, and psychosocial development to lay down the foundation for the development of young adults who are learning the values of integrity, judgement, compassion, personal responsibility, accountability and respect.

  4. Viewing student conflict resolution and management not as an end in itself, but as a tool for affecting student growth and development to prepare students as productive, knowledge-generated and humane citizens of the world.

  5. Upon hiring, all Project PRIZE staff will receive training on the LPP-PP Code of Conduct to discourage discrimination or harassment, raise awareness and sensitivity and ensure non-discriminatory instructional and counseling methods. They will be made aware that federal civil rights laws and regulations protect students from harassment by school employees, other students and third parties and will learn about the QCC and Dignity Act policy, including their potential responsibilities. In addition, the Research Foundation of CUNY, which employs all grant funded staff, mandates the completion of an online harassment training for all employees. LPP students, parents and staff will be invited to review the QCC-LPP-PP code of conduct posted in the LPP-PP webpage of the QCC’s website. Parents will receive a copy upon admission. Upon entrance to the program, all students and families will be informed of the LPP Code of Conduct, behavioral expectations and how to report any incidents.

The Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives is another resource for LPP-PP staff and students. One of the Center’s educational programs focuses on school based harassment, including hate crimes and uses the lessons of the Holocaust and other human atrocities to help students of all ages to fully understand these crimes committed in their schools or communities. The project is based on the belief that young people and adults who are taught how to manage inter-group conflicts, and promote peaceful relations within increasingly diverse society will ultimately become more culturally-sensitive community members and leaders of a society that values each and every human life. The Holocaust center is the only one of its kind in an educational setting in New York State. It serves 25,000 visitors and members annually, including QCC students, local residents, and the City’s public middle and high school students. Its mission is to educate current and future generations about the ramifications of unbridled prejudice, racism, and stereotyping. The center reaches out across Queens’ diverse cultures and languages to engage its communities and foster positive interaction among its residents, through in-school instruction, activities and visits. Project PRIZE will continue to schedule a visit to the center every year, where middle and high school students will learn alternatives to discriminatory or harassing attitudes and behaviors that increase awareness of and capacity to prevent and respond to acts of discrimination and/or harassment.

Thank you,
