Yonkers students participate in mentoring summit
A group of Yonkers students participated in an afternoon of mentoring and empowerment at a My Brother's Keeper stakeholder's summit.
Dozens of middle and high school students were at the event held at Lincoln High School Saturday.
The challenge was put in place by President Barack Obama back in 2014 to bridge the gap and ensure that all young people get a chance to reach their full potential.
Yonkers School Superintendent Edwin Quezada encouraged those students to follow the six-step milestone model from My Brother's Keeper, which includes being employed after graduation and staying out of trouble.
During the summit students were also challenged to test their creative skills by getting to come up with their own tag line for My Brother's Keeper.
