Share 4 Life’s programs are categorized in 4 pillars:
Health & Wellness
Each program category offers training in specific skills and opportunities that are uniquely customized for youth, teens, adults and senior citizens. Read more about our program pillars and featured programs below:
Arts education in underserved communities offers a range of benefits that go beyond artistic skill development. It nurtures creativity, builds confidence, enhances cognitive abilities, fosters cultural pride, and contributes to overall personal and social well-being.
Share 4 Life seeks to bridge the economic opportunity gap that exists in our underserved communities by empowering youth and adults with the tools they need to break down economic barriers and lead financially secure lives. Financial literacy programs covers core concepts on how to spend, save and borrow, and how to invest and accumulate wealth to promote financial independence.
Empowering leaders in underserved communities can create lasting change. In partnership with police departments and community partners, Share for Life’s Leadership Development programs are aimed to build decision making and problem solving skills, while working together with their peers and adult leaders to solve community problems.
Health and Wellness
Health and Wellness: Underserved communities often lack access to nutritious food, safe spaces for physical activity, and healthcare services. Share for Life’s Health and Wellness programs address the health disparity in these communities by providing access to resources, wellness programs, preventative care referrals, and mental health support.
Food Insecurity Program
Share for Life’s Food Insecurity Program is actively working to address the heightened food insecurity in New York City exacerbated by the global COVID-19 pandemic. We work with corporate sponsors, community leaders, and resident association presidents to distribute family grocery boxes and hot meals for NYCHA residents across the five boroughs.
Crime Awareness & Prevention
In partnership with local police stations, this program seeks to empower participants and their communities to develop practical solutions to address crime and how to disengage in potentially harmful situations. Workshops cover skill development on decision making, conflict resolution strategies, and crime prevention tactics.
