Inspire Creativity • Explore College and Careers • Launch into a future. NYC salt uses a camera as a tool to build futures. Our program combines art education, college preparation, 1:1 mentorship, career exploration, internships, and job placement. It’s a one-stop resource for our students who are immigrants, from low-income families and primarily young women of color who dream to enter the creative industry in NYC.
* Every mentor is a volunteer from an ad agency, studio, or powerful company like The New York Times, National Geographic, and Time, Inc.
* Every single student enrolled at NYC Salt goes on to college, often as the first in their family to go.
* Almost all students return as young professionals to mentor the next generation: a virtuous cycle of receiving and giving.
In order to grow the program, continue to provide 1:1 college support, and serve students in 2019, we need to raise $75,000 before Thanksgiving.
