Malave Scholars of The City University of New York (CUNY), a Cassidy client, are on Capitol Hill this week discussing higher education reform, food security, and affordable housing with staff members from the New York Congressional Delegation including U.S. Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries as well as the House Agriculture Committee.
The CUNY Malave Academy provides an advanced level of co-curricular opportunities for students who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership on their campuses and in their communities. This unique program develops leadership values and skills through experiential civic engagement, advocacy activities, and leadership competency training. The Malave students learn how to be effective leaders both within CUNY and their own communities.
