Are you a student who would like to help their community and impact issues that matter to them?
Service in Schools invites you and teachers to refer students in grades 10-12 to apply to participate in the 2024 Leadership Institute!
This is an exciting opportunity for students to connect with their peers from across the city, learn from experts from community-based organizations, and teach elementary students how to help their community! Learn more in the program FAQ and share the application with your students!
Students in grades 10-12 who are interested in becoming leaders while also serving the community should be encouraged to apply.
The program consists of a five-day in-person Institute in midtown Manhattan during spring break, from Monday, April 22 through Friday, April 26, 2024 from 9:00am-3:00pm each day, and an in-person after-school session in early May.
Throughout the program, students will work in small groups to learn about local issues, culminating in the planning and implementation of a day-long Youth Service Summit for elementary school students in late May 2024.
Interested students should complete the application by 11:59pm on Monday, March 4.
