We are thrilled to partner with Hope for New York as a new affiliate this year. That means HFNY helps us recruit amazing volunteers to serve at our arts and mentoring projects citywide.
Join us in welcoming our newest affiliate @nycthrive! 🎨 🎉 Thrive Collective mobilizes students, parents, artists, & community stakeholders to partner with public schools for transformational change. Their core programs—Murals, Music, Media, and Mentoring—provide quality arts education and committed adult mentors in predominantly low-income NYC communities. 📷: Thrive Collective . . . #bringartback #nyc #art #murals #mentoring #wearethrive #bronx #thrivecollective #justice #nycps
Here’s an excerpt from their interview with Jeremy Del Rio, Thrive’s ED. Read the full interview here.
What does being an affiliate with HFNY mean to you and to Thrive Collective?
Being an affiliate with Hope for New York provides access to highly motivated, dedicated, skilled, and passionate individuals who genuinely desire to enrich our City. We want to give every one of them meaningful opportunities to connect with children and youth in the communities where they live, work, or worship.
What do you most want people to understand about Thrive Collective?
Thrive Collective seeks the peace and prosperity of our city, because if it thrives, we all thrive. We do this by restoring justice for the most vulnerable among us—the half-a-million children who live in poverty everyday and the 1.1 million who attend our public schools. Bring Art Back—and all of our programs—is about justice for 419 low-income schools and 250,000 of our most vulnerable students.
