Our virtual program, Techniques for Tailoring AI Input Prompts, on May 2nd was packed with valuable take-aways. Our presenters, Kim Snyder and Joshua Peskay from RoundTable Technology, delivered an outstanding learning experience that built upon the knowledge gained from the previous "AI Do-fest" in-person session. 

Participants also received an extremely helpful AI prompt resource document, a prompt template, and super fun tips. Thank you to our series sponsors: CMITBrown and Brown InsuranceMercer, Westchester County, and Westchester County BOL

The Emerging Leaders Class had a fantastic visit to the Carver Center on Thursday May 2nd. The group was welcomed by CEO Anne Bradner who gave an overview of the history of the Carver Center in Port Chester. 

Daniel Bonnet, Chief Program Officer and ELP alum, got the whole class thinking strategically about operating budgets with a in-depth lesson on "Building a Balanced Funding Portfolio". The class also gained valuable insights from Chief Advancement Officer, Colleen Kane. 

Next, Karina Lehan, Director of Youth and Family Programs & also an ELP alum, gave an incredible tour of the entire center. The class was amazed by all the center has to offer the community - from the Carver Market, to the beautiful indoor pool, teen/college center, and citizenship program.

To top it all off, the class was treated to a delicious complete home cooked dinner cooked by the Carver Center chef. We can't thank the entire Carver team enough for creating such a great afternoon - we'll be back in 2025! Thanks as always to our ELP sponsor M&T Bank.

It was an incredible morning at the grand opening of the beautiful new 914Cares location in Armonk on May 1st. The enthusiasm in the new space was palpable as the 914Cares team cut the red ribbon and officially opened their doors to a new chapter of service. 

NPW Director of Operations, Suzanne Gardos, was honored to be part of such a special moment in celebrating the expansion of the reach and impact of 914Cares in Westchester.
