City Year young people talk education to Committee of the Whole

Two City Year corps members testified December 11 before the Committee of the Whole for the last of the Council Chairman Vince Gray-initiated youth hearings.   Lauren Greenawalt and Aaron Kurz testified about the positive impact City Year corps members are having on DC Public Schools students.

City Year corps members regularly testify before the DC Council at the youth-only hearings.   On November 13, five City Year corps members talked about City Year’s plan to expand the Whole School, Whole Child program into the feeder patterns of the five high schools that produce 50% of the students who dropout of DC Public Schools—Spingarn, Ballou, Anacostia, Cardozo, and Dunbar.
