The Adams Street Foundation (ASF) was founded in 2008 by the administrative leadership of the Urban Assembly School for Law & Justice (SLJ) and the support of the Robin Hood Foundation. ASF is the in-house, non-profit partner to SLJ and is responsible for integrating pre-college enrichment and preparation for college and career into the school’s curriculum. Both ASF and SLJ staff partner together to provide individualized programming to each student. Moreover, our staff work very hard to ensure that our students have the tools to be successful in college and beyond.  This is accomplished in part through a diligent review of college financial aid packages as well as coaching students through the early admissions process. In addition, ASF leverages strategic partnerships with established community organizations aligned with our mission to serve the under-served. Please click the link below to learn more.
