Project Jumpstart winners
See the Project Jumpstart winners for the month of November and learn about how they're helping their communities.
Supporting our Tibetan community
Tashi’s Project Jumpstart grant will help the Tibetan Community of New York and New Jersey (TCNYNJ) build a community center in Queens, where Tibetans can find a home away from home and celebrate their culture. The community center is designed to hold over 3,000 people and will serve as place to hold Tibetan holiday celebrations, give classes, and provide working space for entrepreneurs.
Empowering students with education
Miguel's grant will go to provide supplies for night classes to support group programs at East Side House Settlement in South Bronx. The ESHS gives students secondary education to improve opportunities for New Yorkers aged 17–21 years old.
Helping New Yorkers in need
Every year Harris works with friends and family who are involved with hospitals, nursing homes, and restaurants to bring Thanksgiving meals to those in need. With his Project Jumpstart Harris was able to bring a warm meal to more than 600 New Yorkers this year.
