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.
