GlassRoots 10 Year Annniversary

As the only non-profit “hot shop” for young people in the greater New York metropolitan area, GlassRoots provides a nurturing environment in which otherwise underserved children can achieve self-esteem and creative expression while also learning basic business skills and valuable life lessons through the exploration of the unique art forms of glass making.

The program's founder, Patricia Kettenring, was honored Oct. 6, 2010 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary celebration for GlassRoots, which began at Rutgers, and which provides multiple opportunities for at-risk youth, ages 10-18, to realize their potential through the creation of glass art.

Kettenring is a long-time member of the Rutgers-Newark community, former director of Rutgers Business Schools' Business and the Arts program and currently teaching at Rutgers School of Public Affairs and Administration.
