Young Citizens is a competition wherein student leaders throughout the SONYC and COMPASS network submit leaderships projects that they have developed in their schools and communities. A select few projects are then chosen for presentation at the Young Citizens Conference.
This year, the council put together a proposal to overhaul the student bathrooms on the first floor of the school. They worked with school administration to finalize a plan to overhaul the restrooms and keep them clean and orderly throughout the day.
At the conference on Saturday, the council presented their work to students from schools across the five boroughs, participated in leadership workshops led by their peers, and generally had a really good time. Each student council member was also awarded a special gift: a digital camera, courtesy of DYCD!
Congratulations to our student council and their advisor, Ms. Dean, on all of their hard work!
