The Purpose Lounge Workshop

The Purpose Lounge Workshops

The Purpose Lounge Empowerment Workshop [powered by The Purpose Lounge] is a unique workshop designed to encourage community & social participation through the exploration of the arts, history, and social & media literacy. The workshop is lead by professionals who have extensive backgrounds in the arts / entertainment industry, telecommunications, for-profit & not-for-profit business and community development. We help people develop ways to motivate themselves, get involved in their communities and empower others.

This program also goes beyond the traditional facility model to bring arts education and life mentoring directly to the places it's needed, such as, recreational centers, playgrounds, schools, common spaces in public housing, community events, and public/private spaces throughout the city. The Purpose Lounge model is to augment educational / community betterment programs, which are typically under-resourced and require assistance to realize their mission[s].

We continue working with the Queens Satellite School for Opportunity, which from 2011 to 2014 served as our home base for BETA testing and developing our classroom model.

Available formats for workshops @ your facility or event. Our program is designed to augment existing educational institutions and community programs to help them be more responsive to the needs and goals of the people they serve.
