What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

YouthBridge-NY Fellowship

YouthBridge-NY Fellowship convenes and trains young people to meet the challenges of an extraordinarily diverse New York City. Each year, YouthBridge-NY selects an outstanding group of 35 high school students and, through a two-year program, trains them in the core competencies of leadership and diversity. By engaging these teens in workshops, site visits, lectures, and experiential learning opportunities, YouthBridge-NY ensures that future leaders from the myriad faith, ethnic, and racial groups that compose New York City are equipped to work collaboratively to enrich their neighborhoods and advance the City as a whole.
