Hello Fellow UWC Alumni of New York!

We are excited to announce an upcoming event tomorrow as part of events being held this MARCH:
1. Reception at ADA with UWC-USA students  (March 12th 2015) - details below

We hope to see you at some of our future events!

1. Reception at Adaptive Design with UWC-USA Students.

  • Time: Thursday March 12th 6:30pm
  • Location: 313 West 36th, New York, NY 10018 (Cross St is 8th Av)
  • Price: Free and Open to All (RSVP to the FB event)

This year, for the first time ever, UWC New York (that’s us!) are hosting 12 first-year students from UWC-USA. They are in New York staying with alumni from Saturday March 7th to Sunday March 15th.

4 of the 12 UWC-USA first years coming to NY for project week will be volunteering with Adaptive Design Association, a wonderful charity that aims to provide children with disabilities with the customized adaptations they need. ( . On Thursday, Mar 12th they will present the adaptations they've been working on and we'll get a tour of the ADA facilities to better understand the great work they do. 
We encourage you to come. Admission is free (RSVP to the FB event) and we will be serving light refreshments.


We want YOU to get involved! This is probably the most exciting initiative we’ve organized and we hope to make it a yearly tradition that will strengthen the bonds between students and alumni. Start by showing at one event. If you have other ideas on how you could help, please e-mail us at We’ll be announcing additional events as well as profiling our visiting first-year students in the coming weeks. So stay tuned!


Warm Regards,

The UWC - NY Board (Kevin, Megan, Ryan, Niraj, Faika, Heske, Bonnie, Brian and Waltraud)


The UWC New York alumni group was formed with the goal of strengthening the UWC community locally through events, volunteering opportunities and other initiatives. As we continue our mission, we would like to formalize our presence and establish a non-profit entity with 501(c)(3) status for UWC NY. A 501(c)(3) legal entity will also eventually provide us the platform to make tax-deductible donations as a community to support UWC scholarships and colleges.
We would love some help from the UWC alumni as we begin our legal efforts. In particular,  we would need guidance on legal language as well as on operational matters such as state/federal filing requirements.

If you are able to assist, please contact

3. Request for Volunteer Profiles and Projects.

We will start featuring alumni and the community or volunteer projects they are engaging with. Contact us if you would like to share how you are engaging your community through volunteering. We hope others with similar interests can join you at your event or program when they learn about it.
