    SuitUp increases career awareness for students in low-income communities by organizing community service events for corporations. Our idea is simple – SuitUp brings a group of volunteers from a company into NYC schools, and we run a one-day business competition where employees help students solve a problem for a real company, like creating a new shoe for Nike. For more information or to host a SuitUp competition with your school or company, visit www.SuitUpNYC.com.
