Each year, the New York Urban League recruits a new class of advocates for our Education Policy Committee hosting an intensive Education Boot Camp. Committee members had the opportunity to journalistic skills in writing op-eds, position statements, and preparing for leadership roles inside and outside of the classroom. Policy Committee Members are current and former teachers, after-school and non-profit staff, community members, parents, and New Yorkers who care about the development of youth in the community. Members graduate from the program with leadership development skills, academic connections and a strong network of education advocates and change agents.
