|We Are Human - Youth Documentary|
During Summer 2016, NSNP youth volunteered at St. Francis Inn and explored the theme of homelessness in our community thought art. Teaching Artist Saul Zayas' class created the original documentary short "We Are Human" as part of this project which we are happy to share.
We're looking for a driven and creative fundraiser to join our team! NSNP is hiring a Development and Marketing Manager to support our work with youth teaching them about art, food justice, and preserving Latinx culture.
Our current Development and Marketing Manager is moving on to a new opportunity and while we are sad to see Amanda go, we're excited to recruit a new person for the NSNP family.
