welcome to cityatwork
CITYatwork (Community Initiatives to Teach Youth) believes that in urban centers it takes a city to raise a child. CITYatwork partners with NYC public and private schools to provide 21st-century, interactive curricula and customized professional development. We work with school administrators and teachers to develop sustainable curriculum that follows NYS and NYC Common Core Standards, STEAM and NGSS goals, and provides professionalization in three primary fields: Science, Multimedia Technology, and Engineering.

In year-long partnerships or customized packages, CITYatwork partners with schools to create interactive classrooms and curricular programs that enable hands-on, inquiry-based, 21st-century learning. CITYatwork is a contracted vendor with the NYC Department of Education.

Our History

CITYatwork was founded in 2005 to provide Science and Technology educational enrichment to urban youth in NYC pubic and private schools. We work to ensure that students of all ages develop the necessary skills in math, science, technology, and critical thinking to empower them to pursue 21st-century higher education and professional careers.

CITYatwork ensures academic and professional success with our partner schools through a program called: TECHNOLOGY ACTS: Assess | Customize| Turnkey| Sustain. CITYatwork provides schools with a complete, customized curricular program that meets 21st-century learning goals for K-12 education.



Our Curricula


CITYatwork school partnerships are designed to create Educational Sustainability. We ensure that schools receive long-lasting results through the renovation of lab classrooms, the use of sustainable curriculum, and the design of 21st-century, school learning platforms. We believe that empowered teachers in turn create empowered student learners. Our partner schools receive curricular programs that are renewable and stay with the school for turn-key learning year after year.
