PopUp for Change

PopUp for Change, a program of the 14th Street Y, brings NYC teens together to transform urban spaces into vibrant PopUp hair salons, food trucks, and supper clubs that tackle issues of social justice. We use design thinking and Jewish values of social justice to explore, listen and respond to the needs of the community and to make real change in the world.

In 2017, our teens created a PopUp Hair Salon for senior citizens in need at the Sirovich Center on the Lower East Side. In five days, we provided over 150 haircuts and manicures, served over 200 snacks and danced and played board games as we connected personally with each senior that came to the salon. In 2015, our teens worked with residents of a low-income housing development and local farmers to create and operate a PopUp food truck – bringing healthy food options to the community. Read more about us in Tablet Magazine
