YouthBridge-NY is a nonprofit leadership development organization that convenes and trains young people to meet the challenges of an extremely diverse New York City. YouthBridge-NY youth leaders are proactively involved in the leadership and diversity landscape of our city and are dedicated to improving the quality of life for all.
YouthBridge-NY is now recruiting sophomores (who will be juniors in fall 2011) to participate in this two-year leadership training Fellowship. First-year Fellows take part in monthly skill-building workshops and specialized action committees. Second-year Bridgers apply the skills they learned in their first year by working with nonprofit organizations to develop unique projects targeting a diversity/social justice issue. Fellows and Bridgers participate in a kick-off summer retreat, special meetings with corporate and city leaders, build friendships with peers from all five-boroughs, and more!
Hurry. Deadline is now May 6th, 2011
