L&G recognizes the critical role that New York City professionals in the education and human services fields play in providing youth a safe and nurturing learning environment both in schools and communities.

Our team provides skills-based professional development workshops that challenge the traditional, didactic model by creating a space for participants to share ideas and collaborate in their learning, often in job-embedded contexts. Participants learn by doing! As a result, participants become more well-rounded and skilled in certain areas, better contributors to their organization or school’s mission and goals, and better prepared to advance their careers.
