Greenhouse Scholars Launches Operations in New York

NEW YORK , December 07 /Businesswire/ - Greenhouse Scholars, a nonprofit cultivating diverse leaders, announced that it has launched operations in New York, bringing its successful philanthropic model, honed and tested over nearly two decades, to the nation’s largest city and its surrounding state.

The organization named its first class of Greenhouse Scholars from New York earlier this year, representing The Bronx, Queens, and Long Island. Greenhouse now has full-time staff on the ground in New York City and seeks additional donors, volunteers, and community leaders to help the program continue to grow in the region.

Founding Supporters on the ground floor of this launch include Tiger Global Impact Ventures, TAG Associates, Savills, Modern Executive Solutions, Gamut Capital, and many generous individual contributors.

Founded in 2005 in Colorado, Greenhouse Scholars’ vision is to create a community of leaders who will evolve the communities of the world. The organization’s Community Change Model begins by working with the most inspiring role models from low-income communities during their college years. Greenhouse continues with these young leaders during their post-college lives to support their growth as individuals and collaborate to implement ideas, companies, and change initiatives. As program alums move into their 30’s and 40’s, the Greenhouse community works together to deepen and broaden the impact of these ideas and initiatives to benefit whole communities.

“When we started Greenhouse, our ambition was to grow into a truly national organization, impacting lives across the country,” said Pete Burridge, CEO of Greenhouse Scholars. “Our expansion into New York makes that dream a giant step closer to reality, and we’re incredibly grateful to our inaugural donors there for believing in our vision and providing the resources to serve our first class of Scholars in the state.”

Greenhouse Scholars’ results are undeniable: 97% of Scholars graduate from college, compared to only 15% of low-income, first-generation students nationally. The Scholars’ starting salaries are double that of their parents and are 22% higher than their peers – changing the trajectory of entire families. The Scholars, alumni, and supporters have collaborated to launch and lead hundreds of nonprofit and for-profit businesses, change initiatives, and projects benefitting more than 4,000 communities. 90,000 people are directly impacted by this organization every year through mentoring, volunteering, community initiatives, presentations, entrepreneurship, partnerships, school impact projects, and more.
