Associate Director of Organizing, Make the Road New York
Make the Road NY has been a key partner since the early days in Community School District 30, when the team provided instrumental feedback on the Program’s overall design. As part of the inaugural Community Based Organization Collaborative, Make the Road also participated in a learning community of diverse community based organizations across Community School District 30 with the purpose of using the Save for College Program as a tool to support families. Make the Road NY, including Julissa Bisono, Associate Director of Organizing, worked with NYC Kids RISE to develop and implement Save for College Program trainings for their Padres en Accion member-leaders. These member-leaders then educated other parents in their membership about the Program and its benefits for their community and supported participating families to complete the three Building Blocks.
