Creative Arts Team (CAT) -- Project CHANGE Application

The Creative Arts Team is looking for CUNY's most outstanding student leaders to be a part of their exciting initiative Project CHANGE (Community Health Action in Neighborhoods for Growth and Empowerment). CAT will develop, train, and mentor a cohort of CHANGE Agents - student leaders from York and Medgar Evers Colleges - to use interactive strategies to advocate for adolescent health in order to promote community change. This extraordinary opportunity is designed for students who have demonstrated leadership on campus, have an interest in civic engagement through the arts, proven themselves to be outspoken advocates and/or served as effective leaders in their communities.


CHANGE Agents will be required to attend 2 weekly training workshops throughout the 2014-2015 academic year. Training workshops will be held every Friday from 11am - 3pm at CAT in Midtown Manhattan and once a week on your respective campus (Tuesdays, 12 - 2pm at York College; Wednesdays, 11:30 - 1:30pm at Medgar Evers College).

Please note that the schedule above is subject to change and there may be additional dates required for service projects and professional development activities. Further scheduling details will be provided to program finalists.

Compensation in the form of stipends and tuition assistance will be given to those who successfully complete training and year long activities.
