There are many ways HFNY volunteers can serve, whether it’s connecting to a mural project (one-time community project) or going deeper by becoming a mentor or teaching artist in a school.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
HFNY volunteers are able to come alongside NYC students by helping them to find their creative voice through arts, music, and media.
Why We Love This Affiliate
We love Thrive Collective because they are helping to bring art back to the 419 public schools in low-income neighborhoods that lack art teachers, in turn empowering students to create a life worth living.
When school budgets are cut and the first things slashed are music and arts programs, we rob students of the experiences that awaken the creative imagination God hard-wired into their souls.
In the next 10 years, we plan to incubate new non-profits to holistically serve our city, activate New York churches to love their neighbors in need, and unite New Yorkers to provide solutions to poverty.
Drumroll, please: HFNY’s affiliate family has officially grown to 50 partners! That’s right, we recently added five new non-profit affiliates to our network—for a total of 50—and we couldn’t be more excited. Learn more about them.
We asked Thrive Collective founder, Jeremy Del Rio, to tell us a little about how Thrive came to be, why art, and what kind of impact they’re making—and hoping to make—on the city. Join us in welcoming Thrive as our newest affiliate!
