YouthBridge-NY was a transformative experience. I entered the program as an awkward, reserved sophomore with little sense of what it meant to be a leader and how to make a difference within my community...Fast forward two years, and I am a vocal participant in every committee meeting, unafraid to communicate my ideas and to interact with others; a leader brimming with self-confidence and possessing the necessary tools to achieve whatever I set my mind to.”
— Sean Wong: YB-NY '10; Columbia University '14
