The Urban League of Long Island Campaign for Achievement is an ongoing initiative focused on combating the negative stereotypes of African-American, Hispanic and other youth of color that include images of gang affiliation and underachievement.
Since 1998, the Urban League of Long Island has annually inducted hundreds of youth into the National Achievers Society, an honor society for youth of color and enrolled Campaign Partners that encourage positive youth engagement via their own local programs and services.
State University of New York College at Old Westbury Community Action Learning and Leadership Program 2014 Interns were assigned to work at the Urban League of Long Island as their Community Engagement Site and will facilitate the workshop session.
