Run the 2021 TCS NYC Marathon with PENCIL!
PENCIL is proud to be an Official Charity Partner of the 2021 TCS NYC Marathon. The Team PENCIL application is now open.
PENCIL’s work to connect students to success has never been more important. The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed how students learn and will continue to impact the 1.1 million students in NYC for at least the next year. Further, systemic racism has limited access to opportunity for the students in our programs, who are overwhelmingly working class or low-income and identify as Black and Brown. PENCIL seeks to close this opportunity gap. By joining Team PENCIL, you can help New York City public school students develop their career skills and achieve their goals.
