The LAMP (Learning About Multimedia Project)
The LAMP (Learning About Multimedia Project) is a non-profit organization based in Brooklyn and founded in September 2007. With a commitment to address the lack of basic media literacy education in New York City schools and communities, The LAMP offers free workshops and public events designed to help young people, parents and teachers make sense of the media barrage they encounter in their daily lives. LAMP workshops not only demystify the content and technologies of media, but they also help bridge the digital divide that often alienates youth from adults, while providing the workforce development skills needed to compete in a modern job market. By creating and editing their own blogs, videos, newspapers and more, students are further encouraged to explore the use of media as a positive outlet for creative expression.
Cents Ability, Inc.
Empower New York City high school students to achieve their goals through the prudent and informed management of their financial resources.
We are a group of volunteers dedicated to providing underprivileged high school students with the financial tools and knowledge to achieve their life goals. Providing basic finance classes, Cents Ability has partnered with local and national organizations such as New York Cares and Wall Street Volunteers. Started in 2004 by John Moore and Alexa du Pont, the program is taught in seven 45 minute learning sessions so that even the busiest teens and the volunteers who teach them can manage the commitment. Volunteers working alongside the National Endowment for Financial Education developed the curriculum.
Cents Ability obtained its 501(c)3 nonprofit status in May 2004. Since then classes have been taught at The Door, the Union Settlement Association, Monroe Academy, Washington Irving High School, The Chinatown Manpower Project, SCAN La Guardia, Harlem RBI, The Albert G. Oliver Program, and the John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy Charter school, amongst others.
