The Uni Project is a nonprofit that brings learning opportunities to public space in New York City. Using custom-designed installations, we pop up in parks, plazas, and other public spaces to offer reading, drawing, and hands-on activities that let New Yorkers embrace the act of learning. We partner with community organizations and city agencies, and we prioritize underserved locations. We also send kits around the world so others can copy our model. Get a Uni!

This year, a record number of communities have asked us for help to improve their public spaces, change what we see on the street, and make a place for learning. 90% are low-income. Your donation helps pay our drivers and program staff to answer every call. Thanks for your support.
