Operating within virtual constraints has allowed us to be creative yet powerful. We continue our trajectory of impactful change since 2018.
Expanded Partnerships, Community Outreach and Strong Impact!
Key Highlights include:
International Youth Development: Career coaching provided to over 1000+ students from Wolmers Boys High School in Kingston Jamaica.
Juneteenth: Expert panels covering topics ranging from Financial Freedom, Racial Bias in AI and Mental Health. Panelists have included American activist Tamika Mallory and over 2,000 guests tuned in to celebrate Juneteenth with a history and educational lesson on the Black Tax with special guest Shawn Rochester.
Pride Month: We also co-hosted our first pride month collaboration with Open Finance with “The View from the House” to celebrate intersectional leadership, moderated by Jonathan Capehart from MSNBC, with special guests Lanaya Irvin of Coqual and Mondaire Jones and Ritche Torres - the first Black and Latinx openly LGBTQI+ members of the House of Representatives.
Food Insecurity: Feed Our Needs collaboration with Areté Education Inc. To date we have raised over 40K serving over 1700+ families in Bronx and Harlem. We have had partnership with Carver Federal Savings Bank with meals purchased from black and brown owned local community restaurants - Barrio BX, Melbas and Pointy Bistro.
We are grateful for the power of this community and look forward to all that The Collective will continue to accomplish together.
