Jericho Partnership in Danbury is changing it's mission to focus on at-risk youth. Jericho 2.0 represents a renewed focus on and expanded support for students across Danbury. Officials say they will be working to close the achievement gap and helping kids overcome the obstacles they face. School administrators have invited Jericho to expand their CityServe Reading Buddy program into two, possibly three, additional elementary schools when the school year starts later this month. They will continue expansion next school year as well. Research has shown that reaching students early will give more kids the opportunity to succeed in the future. Jericho plans to also focus on expanding their Academic Tutoring Program, along with its foundational Pathways’ mentoring programs.
