The program provides academic and personal support services to at-risk youth in grades 7-12 in the Rochester City School District (RCSD). LPP offers academic enrichment, tutoring, college and career exploration, life skills strategies, counseling, community service opportunities, social and cultural experiences, as well as activities for parents.
LPP recruits from four RCSD target schools. These schools are East Upper and Lower Schools, The Schools at Edison, Northeast/Northwest College Prep and World of Inquiry #58. A part-time on-site advisor is assigned to each target school to provide case management and academic support. After-school tutoring is held at the student's home school.

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) was started in 1988 by the New York State Department of Education to reduce the high school dropout rate. We are one of many partnerships affiliated with colleges and universities serving students throughout New York State. Our vision is to ensure that LPP students graduate from high school and enter post-secondary education and the workforce as highly competent adults
Monroe Community College is the lead agency of the consortium of businesses, colleges and community based organizations that support the Liberty Partnerships Program.
