Our Emerging Leaders class of 2023 spent a beautiful afternoon on Groundwork Hudson Valley's incredible Science Barge on September 21st. The group learned how Groundwork creates sustainable environmental change in urban neighborhoods through community-based partnerships that promote equity, youth leadership, and economic opportunity.

Development and Communications Associate and current ELPer, Jerome Cunningham, provided a great overview of Groundwork's main areas of focus - sustainability education, youth leadership, and climate resilience. Enormous thanks to Interim Executive Director Ellen Theg and Director of Development Karen Tumelty for hosting us.

Joel Rodriguez, Sustainability Education Program Manager, gave an amazing tour of all that is growing on the barge, and the group enjoyed a delicious wine and cheese spread.  

Thank you to our ELP Program Sponsors: Mutual of America Financial Group and Hudson Valley Credit Union.

Thank you to the 30+ participants who joined us last Friday, September 22nd for another incredible Peer-to-Peer Affinity Group meeting led by the outstanding Dr. Alexandria Connally and Michelle A. Nicholas.

As part of a two-session topic, the group discussed stereotypes with an opening icebreaker that encouraged people to speak to new friends. By the end of the session, the room was filled with laughter and joy. 

Thank you to our sponsors for supporting this group: PCSB Bank Community Foundation, United Way of Westchester and Putnam, Pace University, Westchester Library System.
