About The New Prosperity Initiative
The New Prosperity Initiative (NPi) is a Boston-based media organization that pairs storytelling with new media to publicize the efforts of people and organizations doing socially innovative work to end poverty and build prosperity. NPi stories take the shape of interviews, photo essays, videos, and podcasts and are distributed both in print and online.
The purpose of NPi is to connect community leaders to one another and build a nationwide network of ideas and solutions in order to bring the best models, strategies, and leadership qualities to the places that need them most. NPi also hosts community dialogues which bring together local leaders to discuss lessons learned, current projects, and potential collaborations.
Tell your friends and colleagues, and we hope to see you there!
