  • Year 2019

  • Industry Non-Profit / Government,
  • CIVILIVN has accomplished the office design for Exalt Youth, a non-profit that supports court-involved youth, located in New York City, New York.

    Exalt hired CIVILIVN to transform a cramped and dated space in a 1901 office building into an inspiring environment that empowers participants to learn marketable skills and find steady jobs.

    13 years after its founding in 2006, Exalt had an opportunity to expand their reach and better serve youth from across all five boroughs of New York City. With support from Empire State Development and the New York City Regional Economic Development Council, the nonprofit relocated to their new, larger headquarters at 17 Battery Place.

    CIVILIVN designed its new 4,000 sq ft space to be a dual-use office and classroom. With seating for 16 staff, a lounge area, a pantry, two meeting rooms, printing and IT facilities, and two classrooms, Exalt is able to triple its previous level of service. Through these updated and expanded facilities, the organization is better-poised to demonstrate to more young New Yorkers the power of educational engagement as an alternative to criminal justice involvement.
