In 2022, World Connect launched NYC Connect, a new initiative that employs the organization's catalytic seed funding approach to ignite the ideas of grassroots visionaries in New York City. NYC Connect invests in people and organizations in the five boroughs of New York City who are passionate about addressing problems that impact their communities with solutions that are a product of deep listening, engagement, and/or consensus-building at the community level.  We feel that the expertise, ingenuity and commitment to solving challenges lies in the talents and leadership of individuals and groups who live and experience these challenges every day and we see our role as amplifying their ideas and supporting their leadership.  In this way, NYC Connect is not prescriptive and funds a wide range of program areas from education to food sovereignty to community health and well being and more. See our webpage at www.nycconnect.org for more information.
