WHAT IS THE LIBERTY PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM?

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is a comprehensive academic excellence program funded by a grant from the New York State Education Department.  It was created in 1988 to address the significant school dropout rate among New York State’s youth.  LPP engages colleges and universities, school districts, parents, students, community organizations, business and industry, and local government as stakeholders.

Farmingdale State College LPP works with students from the Amityville UFSD and the Wyandanch UFSD.

 

Mission

The mission of LPP is to link our students to an institution of higher education and expose them to college and community ventures, which are designed to promote learning. We strive to ensure that program participants graduate from high school and enter post-secondary education and/or the workforce as highly competent young adults.
