SUITE NY has been a member of the Architecture & Design community since 2006—it was then that we began forming relationships with other members in the industry and actively participating in its fast-paced environment. Here at SUITE NY we recognize that being surrounded by a group of like-minded peers who can provide support and share their passion for the world of design is the ultimate driver towards growth and success, both individually and collectively.

Today, 14 years after entering this wonderful community, we want to give back to a new generation of future members working to break into the fields of Art, Design, and Architecture by donating to two educational programs in the heart of NYC.
Harlem School of the Arts has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of young people through world-class training in music, dance, theatre and art & design. With a strong commitment to leveling the playing field by empowering young people, more than 85% of students are African American or Latino and nearly 50% of students taking classes receive financial aid, scholarships, or take advantage of the flexibility of extended payment plans.

We want to invest in our future leaders from a young age, which is why SUITE NY will be making a donation to support the HSA Prep Program Fund. This highly selective, pre-professional scholarship program, provides students ages 12-18 with tuition-free, high-level arts training in music, dance, theatre, and art & design. HSA Prep’s graduates have had a near 100% acceptance rate to prestigious colleges, universities, and conservatories including Harvard University, The Juilliard School, Spelman College, Brown University, and NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, among many others.

The Black Alumni of Pratt (BAP) was founded in 1990 to identify and advance scholastic and professional opportunities for Pratt students and alumni of African and Latinx descent. BAP’s objective is to advance those opportunities by sharing resources, cultivating an influential network, and utilizing professional contacts.

Overall, BAP helps promote an understanding of how diversity can better society at large. BAP’s mission reflects a guiding Principal of Pratt Institute’s founder Charles Pratt, who said in 1887, “I want to found a school that shall give everybody a chance,” And, reflecting Charles Pratt’s visionary spirit, within the top five art and design schools in the United States and Canada, only Pratt Institute has the distinction of having the first Black alumni association.

Furthering our commitment to the education of future members of the A&D community, and in celebration of BAP’s 30th anniversary, SUITE NY will also be making a donation to The Black Alumni of Pratt to fund scholarships, internships, stipends, and other BAP related initiatives for Pratt students of African American and Latinx descent.
