About:

The #DegreesNYC Youth Council is an opportunity for NYC high school, college, and non-traditional students to be a part of a youth advocacy network by working with #DegreesNYC. Our Youth Council is committed to making schools and campuses more student-ready by advocating for institutional and political reform.

Responsibilites

The Youth Council consists of five action areas: Coalition, Data, Media, Outreach, and Policy. Students are encouraged to participate in any of the five action areas that interest them. There is a paid fellowship opportunity available for students (both traditional and non-traditional) who can commit approximately 10-15 hours of their time monthly to the Youth Council.
