Recovery Lab: Lessons from the Pandemic and Implications for the Future

Posted by National Center for Community Schools on May 11, 2021

We are thrilled to announce the publication of a report that documents the important work of Recovery Lab, an initiative we facilitated to meet the needs of young people across New York City during the ever-changing and unpredictable context of the summer and fall of 2020.

While the impetus of Recovery Lab was to respond immediately to what we hoped would be a temporary set of circumstances, what we learned along the way is a set of ideas about policy and practice that we believe has implications for the long term and beyond New York City.

We are grateful to have had the opportunity to learn with and from the many individuals and organizations that contributed to this collective (and ongoing) effort, and we thank them for sharing their successes and challenges along the way. In the report, you will see their dedication to young people and their unwavering commitment to develop solutions shine through.

It is our sincere hope that this report will serve as a resource to schools and communities across the country as they wrap up the spring term of the school year and plan for the summer and fall.
