THE CROWN HEIGHTS YOUTH COLLECTIVE
CLIENT DESCRIPTION: The Crown Heights Youth Collective is a not for profit organization based in Brooklyn, New York. It was founded in 1977 by Richard E. Green, and has serviced thousands of youth and their families locally, nationally, and globally. The services provided by the organization are job development, after-school assistance, board consulting, GED prep, and a food pantry.
In 2003, Adero Media was retained by The Crown Heights Youth Collective to plan and execute their 25th anniversary gala. The gala was held at The Brooklyn Museum of Art, and there were over 500 guests in attendance.
The event raised a total of $20,000 dollars to support their afterschool and academic initiatives. In addition press coverage took place on NY1, and the Mayor Mike Bloomberg presented a special citation to the founders of the organization.
