SYEP 2023 Younger Youth Orientation

We call our program NYCIDY because your mission is to help create a micro-city which will be a vision of the actual city (world) you want to live in – a place where you feel welcomed, and one where you have a sense of belonging. This summer you and your fellow Nycidizens will work as a team to accomplish a common goal and while you do so you will have lots of space to explore who you are and who you may wish to #Become!
