Summer 2015

MHSIS Students Participate in the New York Cares 2015 Summer Youth Community Service Program

During July 2015, several Marble Hill School for International Studies students participated in the New York Cares Summer Youth Community Service Program. Students developed awareness of the need for summer programs that help sharpen youngsters' reading, math, and science skills. As they engaged in the service activities, the Marble Hill Students served as role models for younger kids and gained skill and confidence in public speaking. In addition, students were able to apply their knowledge of school subjects as they led STEM activities with third graders.  They also packed and distributed literacy kits in the Inwood community. Inwood Library librarian, Danita Nichols, was so impressed with the students that she invited them to apply for paid internships at the library!
