As part of the Leadership Development and Civic Engagement curriculum, MY NYC students viewed the “Immigrant City” exhibit at the New York Historical Society. The exhibit details immigration from 1609 through the 20th century and explores how newcomers helped create the city we know today. The MY NYC program aims to expose Muslim youth to New York City civics, government and history. The trip served as an inspiration. Students will reflect on  immigrant contributions to our city as they begin their civic engagement projects.
