Brooklyn Learning Lab is the collective effort of four women: Carol, Josephine, Tiffany, and Tricia. As third world immigrants, we strongly believe in each child's right to a sound education. Unfortunately, the report one hears about the educational potential of Brooklyn school children fails to inspire. For us, a child's learning experience should inspire them to explore, experiment and tinker with their own education for personal success. That is why, we created Brooklyn Learning Lab to help Brooklyn school children build their learning success over time.
Together We Hope To Affect Change and Help Build Lives.
