PACH Interventions

Through our work in the community, we apply the science of human connection to create and evaluate our efforts toward addressing the crisis of connection. 

The Listening Project

Funded by the Spencer Foundation, The Listening Project, part of PACH and the Radical Listening Project at NYU, trains middle school students and their teachers in a semi-structured method of interviewing. The goal is to enhance listening skills, empathy, trust, academic engagement and achievement as well as disrupt stereotypes and build relationships across difference. PACH currently implements the project with 7th graders and their teachers at George Jackson Academy. In 2018, they will extend their work to seven middle schools across New York City and evaluate the impact on students and teachers.  

The We Are Human Campaign

The We Are Human campaign is a collection of video self-portraits and interviews that reveal our common humanity. The campaign has be conducted in Abu Dhabi, NYU Stern Business School, and with police officers and community members throughout five communities in California
