Peace Poets at Newcomers HS

Precollege activities allow students to participate in College Now who may not meet certain eligibility requirements.  These types of activities are carefully sequenced so that students are able to build to a college credit experience in subsequent semesters.  This video features students from Newcomers High School in Long Island City, Queens, who have just recently arrived to the US and have learned to express their stories with the help of The Peace Poets.  For more information about the Urban Word connection through College Now, contact College Now staff at 718-254-7252.
