OUR ADVISORY PROGRAM
The Brooklyn Prospect Advisory consists of individual adult members of the Brooklyn Prospect Community paired with small groups of students. The purpose of the Advisory program is to help each student reach his or her potential. There are two main objectives that support this mission. The first objective is to provide opportunities to develop socially and emotionally as part of a supportive small group. The second objective is to provide opportunities to develop and strengthen cognitive skills and advance the pursuit of knowledge. To achieve these objectives, Advisory combines activities, discussions, and reflections to help students develop open minds, persistence in learning, caring attitudes towards the world and people around them, and the ability to reflect and think critically about themselves and their world. Thus, the advisory curriculum is geared to develop students interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, organizational skills, provide students the opportunity for career exploration, and help students succeed as individual members of our global community.
