Everyday Superheroes

The Uprising exists to empower an army of everyday superheroes to rise up and make a difference in the health and vitality of New York City.

She sits at the cubicle behind you. He serves you brunch. She laughs on the C train. He practices ukulele. We are all around – extraordinary New Yorkers making a habit of making a difference. What makes us extraordinary?

Like most superheroes, we know that strength is less about how much you can lift, and more about who you choose to lift up.

The Uprising has three programs to channel our audacious generosity into measurable results.

LevelUp Academy: Day-long mini-camps for college-bound NYC Juniors and Seniors. NYC teens learn one-on-one with an Uprising mentor in a high-energy, creative, interactive setting where they develop skills in one of four focus areas: Personal Development, Creative Expression, Fitness, and Food/Nutrition.

SWARMS: Transformative physical makeovers to improve the spaces where NYC teens live, learn, and play. Our Superhero army rallies together to enhance and upgrade physical spaces like schools, playgrounds, and community centers.

Uprising Connect: Curated volunteer opportunities to support meaningful projects around the City. The Uprising commits to ongoing projects with various organizations where our volunteers can make meaningful impacts on the diverse challenges facing NYC.
