Liberty Partnerships Program

Foundation of Liberty

The Liberty Partnerships Program was started in 1988 by the State of New York Department of Education to reduce the high school dropout rate in New York State. In 1989, a number of local community-based agencies and institutions of higher education formed the first Liberty Partnerships Programs.

Liberty at NCCC

The New York State Education Department awarded NCCC a new Liberty Partnerships Program 5 year grant for 1.75 million dollars. We will be able to provide longitudinal service to students in Niagara County for the duration of the grant cycle (2013-2017). The program serves students in grades 5-12 in 3 school districts encompassing 9 schools.

Niagara Liberty Partnerships Program

NCCC's Liberty Partnerships Program (NLPP) offers wide-ranging pre-collegiate and dropout prevention programs to youth in Niagara County. NLPP is designed to help "at-risk" middle and high school students succeed academically. This year-round program is housed at Niagara County Community College with home bases within three Niagara County school districts: Lockport, Niagara Falls, and North Tonawanda.
