CYNY January FAB 5!

On January 27, 2012, the entirety of City Year New York’s site gathered to celebrate and appreciate the community’s service, initiatives, and successes of the first quarter. PS 213’s auditorium was overflowed with ubuntu connections, ripples and joys and laughter. Starfish stories painted the walls as everyone stepped out of their boots and slipped into moccasins to experience service through others. Strong value was placed upon community threads that connect the Executive Leadership to Corps Member encouragement.

To acknowledge and appreciate the corps members that have taken it upon themselves to go above and beyond to provide excellent service for the students and communities they serve, corps members have the opportunity to be nominated for the Fab 5. These 5 corps members are nominated and voted on by the site, and were announced at this site-wide event! One corps member from each zone, South Bronx and South Brooklyn, East New York, East Harlem, Queens, and a Senior Corps Member is chosen!

Our Fab 5 winners have been described as innovative, dedicated, unwaveringly dependable, extraordinary, resilient, caring, and incredible leaders. Help us congratulate our Fab 5 winners!
