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, responsible for integrating pre-college enrichment and preparation for college and career into the school’s curriculum. ASF and SLJ staff work together to provide individualized programming to each student. Core components of this work include SAT prep, college tours, financial aid counseling, essay feedback, mentoring, study abroad opportunities, internships, networking with seasoned professionals, after-school learning academies, career site visits, and 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.
