After the dust from finals and graduation had settled, Franchesca Cifuentes, a new alumnus of Milano’s Nonprofit Management program and winner of the New Challenge, sat down to share with us her experience co-founding a new organization, Harlem Peace Partners.
Hello, Franchesca! Congratulations on your New Challenge victory and thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us. We are eager to learn about your organization, Harlem Peace Partners, and how your collaboration with fellow Milano alum, Talib Hudson, contributed to the project’s success. To begin, please briefly describe your organization, where you are in its development, and your next steps.
Harlem Peace Partners is a grantmaking and research institute with a mission to support and strengthen community-based anti youth-violence organizations, programs, projects, and entrepreneurs in Harlem. We seek to facilitate the growth and development of community-based organizations (CBOs) by building their capacity so that they may have a greater impact on the youth and the community as a whole. Our goal is to develop an innovative, grassroots funding model that will allow us to harness the economic activity in Harlem, redirect much needed resources back to CBOs, and ultimately become financially sustainable ourselves.
Winning the New Challenge was the fun part, what comes next is the actual labor-intensive work which we are more than ready for and very excited about! We’re actively working to build a strong foundation from which Harlem Peace Partners can grow and flourish. Currently, we are developing on our business plan and legally establishing ourselves as an organization.
