I founded this organization ten years ago, and could not have guessed that a class of 8 kids would develop into a program serving over 200 across all five boroughs of NYC. I couldn't have guessed that students I taught in middle school woud go on to college at great schools like SCAD, Parson's, Cornell, The Chicago Art Institute, and Carnegie Mellon, kids that either would have not gone to college at all or not attended the great schools we helped them get into. The fact that one of our college students would have a frequent byline in the New York Times Magazine is AMAZING. I'm so proud to be apart of these kids lives.
Will you help me raise $5,000 this fall to help support our porgramming so we can serve more students in 2019, using our professional networks to provide career and college exposure, to help them create award winning portfolios and get into college.
Check out the video above. It was made by our summer camp students and their teachers - both alumni. It's one of my favorites!
