New Jersey – Cushman & Wakefield’s Andy Merin is being honored at the All Stars Project of New Jersey’s Fall Benefit taking place on November 3.
“All Stars Project is a wonderful organization that creates engaging development programs reaching thousands of aspiring young people from the most underserved parts of New Jersey,” said Merin. “I have been involved with the All Stars Project for nearly 10 years and it is such a rewarding experience to see the programs empower young people to be successful in education, the workplace and life. I am incredibly honored to be recognized at the Fall Benefit.”
All Stars Project is a national, privately-funded nonprofit organization providing award-winning free afterschool development programs for youth in poor and underserved communities. Shadae McDaniel, Vice President and City Leader, ASP of New Jersey said, “we are proud to honor Cushman and Wakefield for their generosity, partnership and commitment to giving young people opportunities to learn new performances – from improv exercises to build confidence embarking on new experiences, to mock job interviews, which develop critical skills for becoming strong positive contributors to their communities as adults.”
Cushman & Wakefield participates in the All Stars’ Development School for Youth and internship program, where participants ages 16 to 21 learn to perform as professionals and collaborate with business leaders across the country through development workshops and paid summer internships.
“I am extremely proud of my colleague Andy Merin and his dedication to the All Stars program,” said Peter Bronsnick, Managing Principal of New Jersey. “Andy has been a passionate supporter of the All Stars Project since 2013, creating a real impact for people seeking opportunities throughout the Tri-State area. Cushman & Wakefield cares deeply about creating equity in the workplace and we are honored to participate in the All Stars’ internship program to create new possibilities for these inspiring next-gen professionals.”
