NYCHA’s Youth Leaders Get Connected

Youth Leadership Council member Mya Pyle (right) receives a free tablet from Curtis Williams, Manager of NYCHA’s Resident Engagement Department. All 150 members of NYCHA’s 15 Youth Leadership Councils (YLC) received free tablets courtesy of T-Mobile, NYCHA, and the City of New York, that they can use for developing projects to help their communities. In 2016, T-Mobile provided 5,000 public housing residents in the Bronx with tablets as part of the part of the Obama Administration’s ConnectHome Initiative.

Watch some of the Youth Leadership Council members talk about how the tablets will help them with their community work here: https://youtu.be/qyEHyRqtud0.
