February 13, 2022, New York, NY — Seaport Global’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee has partnered with the New Heights organization for support, mentorship and philanthropic growth.
The New Heights Youth, Inc. is a non-profit sports-based youth development and education organization based In NYC. New Heights creates opportunities and provides support for promising youth to fulfill their potential in the classroom, on the court and in the community. Its mission is to educate and empower promising underserved youth to be leaders, champions and student-athletes by developing the skills necessary for success in high school, college and life.
As a part of this ongoing structured partnership, Seaport employees conducted a finance workshop on February 13, 2022. The group worked with over 100 students ages 7-14. They presented motivational material, an elementary overview of the stock market and led an in-depth conversation about a major athletic company.
Ted Smith, Executive Director of New Heights said “I want to thank you for all of your time, efforts and support. The workshops were awesome and our kids were really engaged and got a lot out of the sessions (I learned a few things too!). From the snacks to the presentations to your words, you thought of it all and made a big impact. We really appreciate all the work you put into making this happen”
