Liberty Partnerships Program

We seek to
foster relationships

Our Student and Family Education Advocates provide services, activities and opportunities that help our students develop support systems that provide, encourage, establish and guide them into becoming competent and compassionate members of our society.

What is
Liberty Partnerships?

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is a collaboration of 46 higher education institutions across New York State to support at-risk middle and high school students in their academic, social and emotional development. Through meaningful programs, students engage more fully in their education and are more likely to graduate from high school and continue on to higher education or stable employment.



We seek to provide participants with academic support, character and leadership development as well as opportunities to give back to their communities through service learning and community service.



We encourage participants to excel academically by providing career and college exploration, guidance and connection to their community.



We establish support systems and connect participants with valuable community resources.  Participants also have the opportunities to develop life, leadership and job skills.



We guide participants towards academic advancement, personal development and transitioning into the next phase of their lives.  Students complete personal learning plans and social emotional assessments to help them set goals and guide them on their journeys.
