Dear Friends, Supporters, Members and Community

After much deliberation, the Board of Directors of New Leaf has decided to cease coworking operations effective January 1, 2022.   The persistence of the pandemic, combined with the Borough’s need to take over the current facility for essential services, has made the operational model unworkable for the foreseeable future.  

We hope you are proud of the community, change and growth that New Leaf has catalyzed in the last 12 years.  Today State College has multiple private and public coworking options, a vibrant community hub in 3 Dots, and numerous entrepreneurship support programs – beyond what could have been imagined when New Leaf was founded in 2009.   

On behalf of the many coworkers, community groups, and new businesses that benefited from the “happy collisions” that were at the center of New Leaf, we want to offer our deepest appreciation for your support over the years.  

-Abby Gaffron, Executive Director

While the coworking space will be closed, the Board will continue to meet on a regular basis over the next year to manage New Leaf’s ongoing obligations and to assess emergent community needs.  

If you have questions, concerns, or uncover new ways that New Leaf might serve the State College community, please let us know.
