Additional activities for professionals include evening professional talks/cocktail hours and partnerships with local design organizations to create programming that heightens the visibility of minority architects + designers.


Additionally, nycoba|NOMA facilitates opportunities for individuals and groups interested in fostering relationships with college level students through mentorship.  Key events include our annual Crafting the Interview, a portfolio + resume review day, along with larger lecture forums geared specifically towards current students and recent graduates.

Our mission is to empower young people to affect change in their community through design. Using the city as the classroom, and connecting young people to real world architects and planners, we foster the next generation of design professionals, civic leaders, and change makers. We advocate for increased inclusiveness, diversity, fellowship, equity, and excellence in design.

We guide students through all stages of design using provoking and fun exercises. Students investigate through drawing and model building, analyze through diagramming and research, and engage through interviews and site visits. By the program’s conclusion, students present a fully realized project that addresses an issue in their city.
