Virtual Town Hall Shining a Light on Community Support
Amidst unprecedented challenges, we have observed the power and importance of communities coming together to support one another. To kick off the 2021 NYC Kids RISE Virtual Town Hall Series, we are bringing together five members of the Save for College Program community that have stepped up to support their neighbors. These panelists, representing some of the many organizations and people that serve our neighbors, have developed creative initiatives — rooted in connection and relationships — to help address community needs. Join us to meet these leaders, learn more about their efforts and connect with one another as we move forward together.
