Project Description

Case Study – City Lore

City Lore’s mission is to foster New York City – and America’s – living cultural heritage through education and public programs.  They document, present, and advocate for New York City’s grassroots cultures to ensure their living legacy in stories and histories, places and traditions.

The Engagement

PennPAC researched best practices and strategies to help City Lore create and retain a new generation of interested followers.

The Outcome

  • Due to the recommendations by PennPAC, City Lore created a Young Professionals Board (YPB) within months of the engagement’s conclusion.
  • 19 active members joined the Board within the first year and subsequently planned their first-ever benefit.
  • Several members offered to take the lead on cultivation events in 2014.
