Class Description


What you'll learn in this guides class:

How can we better serve New Yorkers who don’t have the same access to basic services?

40% of New York City households lack the income to cover needs like food, rent, healthcare, and childcare. Meanwhile, the price of basic needs is growing nearly three times the rate of wage increases. Hear from organizations like Con Edison and Neighborhood Trust who are driving change and serving the people of New York to learn how each one of us can advocate for and support fellow New Yorkers in need.

What You’ll Learn

  • Resources that are available to low-income New Yorkers
  • In-depth perspectives on how to advocate and serve underserved communities
  • Challenges and opportunities in working to improve living standards across NYC
  • Trends within New York’s civil sector
  • Innovative organizations that are making food, shelter, energy, and financial services affordable and accessible
About Be Social Change Events
