We are excited to think outside of the box and work with Elm Shakespeare  and other community partners throughout New Haven to use theatrical storytelling and even the words of Shakespeare to raise issues important to all of us and broaden our city-wide perspectives so that New Haven can be more unified.We are a non-profit, by youth/for-youth, peer-to-peer training organization established in 1990 to prevent youth violence. For over 27 years, awe have specialized in training, prevention, and empowerment. One of our core beliefs is that youth communicate and learn best from their peers of similar age, racial and social status groups. Therefore, SNDH is committed to a Train-the-Youth-Trainer™ concept. Our aim is to prepare youth for a School-to-College-to-Career positive lifestyle transition. SNDH is known for its innovative, creative style. Survivin' N Da  Hood (SNDH) uses the reality of built-in consequences to teach youth to think before they do something that cannot be changed or erased. SNDH provides behavior modification training in critical thinking skills and social skills for adults and youth. Our training offers answers to life's tough situations; shows how to improve deficient, negative behaviors; and provides more options for difficult decision-making.Founded in 1995, Elm Shakespeare Company has given the gift of Free Shakespeare to over half a million people in Edgerton Park. We strive to ignite a creative spark, bringing people together through Shakespeare to share their humanity and build community. We work to strengthen the already vibrant artistic and educational landscape of greater New Haven, through the highest quality professional performances coupled with rigorous and joyous education programs that enrich the diverse New Haven community. Our educational programs now serve 500 students a year and  educational partners include Housing Authority of New Haven, Mauro Sheridan Interdisciplinary Middle  School, Common Ground High School, Whitney Center and LEAP. We value inclusivity, artistic excellence and the power of these plays in our lives.

LISC CEO to Congress: Here’s What Opportunity Zones Need To Succeed

Maurice A. Jones testified before the Joint Economic Committee of Congress this week, urging its members to implement Opportunity Zones in ways that will truly benefit Americans in underinvested communities. The policy can spur billions in private investment in the country’s most distressed census tracts and play a major role in closing the opportunity gap, he said. But we need federal tax incentives and other strategies to help the program succeed.

Crowdfunding + LISC Give Small Businesses a Big Boost

Small businesses are a major dynamo of innovation and growth in our economy—they make up more than 99 percent of U.S. enterprises and create two out of every three new jobs. A partnership between LISC and the crowdfunding platform Kiva is connecting small business entrepreneurs across the country with the capital and knowhow they need to succeed.
