New Hope Academy + The Resource Exchange
New Hope Academy is an alternative school for grades 6-12 with locations in Yardley and Doylestown, Pennsylvania that has a unique approach to education and the personal success of their students. Teacher David Boyd first came to The Resource Exchange with students to find set materials for the school’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof.” Boyd has since continued to use our salvaged materials to build their theatre sets and teach his students about reuse. Through incorporating reclaimed material from The Resource Exchange in their productions, students at New Hope are learning not only about what goes into creating theater, but also about how a little creativity can extend the life of used materials from the arts.
