Carbon NYC will host 500 guests at its second annual Charity Event on May 7th at Center 548 (548 West 22nd Street, NYC).

The fundraiser will serve a dual purpose; to raise funds for CampInteractive and to celebrate the charity’s 10 year anniversary.

CampInteractive is a New York based, non-profit organization that empowers inner-city youth through the inspiration of the outdoors and the creative power of technology. They believe that when urban teenagers step back into nature and forward into technology they gain invaluable skills, heighten their academic standing, and begin to realize more of life’s possibilities. The goals of the organization are to provide NYC’s inner-city youth with technology training, giving participants a creative outlet. The organization provides environmental education to connect city kids to the natural world and the environmental issues facing their generation, as well as a safe space to learn, grow, and build personal goals for the future. In September of 2006, a year-round program began with the opening of the Center as a base. CI now actively engages youth throughout the year with academic tutoring, monthly outdoor trips, and technology workshops. To learn more, visit http://www.campinteractive.org.
