Taste of New Futures: Around the World

Our rooftop party returns October 4, 2024!

This year's event will transport guests on a global cultural journey featuring countries from across the New Futures community.

Join us on the rooftop for:

Immersive cultural exhibits

Authentic cuisine

Live performances


Connecting OUR Cultures, one bite at a time

Taste of New Futures is an annual rooftop cocktail reception hosted by the New Futures Associate Board. Funds raised support our mission to offer educational opportunities for rewarding careers to young people in the DMV.

This event allows us to share our mission while celebrating the diversity of cultures and identities that make our community unique. Join us as we explore global cuisine in an atmosphere of joy and togetherness.

Our goal is to raise $30,000—that's enough to fully fund three Scholars' journeys with New Futures, including all the 1:1 academic and career advising, financial scholarships, skill-building workshops, and community activities a Scholar needs to achieve success.


Learn about the vibrant tapestry of cultures that make-up New Futures, featuring staff from various embassies.


Enjoy chef-inspired dishes representing the home countries of New Futures Scholars.


Meet and connect with Scholars, alums, staff, and like-minded supporters from across the New Futures community.

Join us on the rooftop for a deliciously diverse evening!
