New Urban Arts manages to make everyone who comes into contact with it have hope for the future of Providence and the world. As a board member for the past 7 years I've seen it grow and evolve - but most importantly, I've been able to grow and evolve with it. My profession is as a non-profit leader and consultant, but much of my greatest learning in this field has come from my interaction with New Urban Arts. That's what is so amazing about this organization - everyone is a learner, everyone is a teacher. If we all carry that out into the rest of the world, we will be the change we want to see in the world.
New Urban Arts is a great place, not only for the students and mentors, but for Board Members like me, as well. I love the energy and the creativity the infuses the entire operation.
