All of our Corps Members engage in individual advocacy projects; they pick their topics during YASI and work on them throughout the school year.  The projects cover a wide range of topics, including:


  • Bringing more mental health services to East New York

  • Increasing student access to contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancies

  • Providing vital resources to immigrants in the Bronx who may be eligible for public health assistance of some kind

  • Erasing the stigma around mental health in the high school environment

  • Providing mentoring services to younger students to boost their self confidence and provide role models

  • Reducing the number of tobacco smokers, using artwork and social media to spread the message that smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in America
