SNAP, the much-loved, long-time non-profit with community programming around civic organizing, financial literacy, technology, entrepreneurship and job skills is one of sixteen collaborative teams selected by desigNYC for the 2012 "Recharging Communities Projects". The teams are composed of nonprofits serving the public good paired with civic minded design professionals who share their expertise on a pro bono basis.
SNAP will work on a collaborative basis with New York City design firm, Incorporated Architecture and Design for a resdesign of their Myrtle Avenue computer lab, reception and office spaces. Incorporated has produced an amazingly transformative and incredibly affordable interior design for SNAP and they need our help to bring it to life! Check out SNAP's Indiegogo link believe to donate to make the design a reality.
