Congratulations to Sarah Murslim for being the recipient of the 2014 Coro Alumni Impact Award! Sarah is one of RAP’s youth leaders who helped organize the first Youth-Led Mayoral Debate in 2013. She went on to become a member of our Youth Advisory Council (YAC), which designs workshops and campaigns for youth in disadvantaged communities. YAC recently hosted a forum that discussed alternative disciplinary options in NYC public schools.
Sarah was recently featured in Queens Press where she thanked Coro for inspiring her to develop her skills and expand her horizons. Her goal, she told the newspaper, is to make sure that the voices of the youth are heard and for them to make a difference in the world.
Coro is a non-profit organization that trains young, emerging advocates to further develop their leadership skills and help them gain experience in community organizing, public policy, and business, among other sectors. Sarah, a senior at Hillside Arts and Letters Academy in Queens, has made youth empowerment her special focus. She would like to see more youth get involved and become more effective in achieving their goals.
There will be an Awards Gala on April 22 to honor Sarah for being one of the outstanding leaders who exemplify Coro’s mission to create positive change and impact in our city.
