#GetOnBoard: Focus on education
Make a year end donation; support our #GetOnBoard campaign 

PortSide NewYork creates NYC's most innovative waterfront programs in ports, parks, shipyards, storefronts, schools and on the tanker MARY A. WHALEN. 

Our new long-term home enables us to expand so many activities, especially our educational programs where we use WaterStories about the waterfront and the ship MARY A. WHALEN to bring multiple themes to life and teach life lessons.

Please make a year-end donation to help us expand programs for visiting schools, summer internships, job-training programs -- and the other good work we do.

PortSide educational programs teach the elementary physics of simple machines, Hurricane Sandy and community resiliency, restoration and preservation skills, and more. We always explain the working waterfront and harbor.

As part of our #GetOnBoard campaign launched in late October, we have recruited personnel to expand our curricula and school relationships.  

Please donate now and  help PortSide reach more students. 

Please support our #GetOnBoard campaign and help PortSide grow!

PortSide NewYork is a living lab for better urban waterways. 
PortSide brings WaterStories to life. 

Our WaterStories programs, services and advocacy show how to combine the working waterfront, public access and community development. 

PortSide brings the communities ashore and afloat together, 
for the benefit of all.
