Jewish Latinx Youth Council (JLYC)

High School Students From Northern Manhattan Make a Difference Together

The Y’s Jewish Latinx Youth Council (JLYC) is a bi-weekly program that brings together local Jewish and Latinx high school students from Northern Manhattan — Washington Heights and Inwood — to work on relationship building through social action projects, communal and identity exploration, and joint learning. 

The goals of the program are to strengthen the social cohesiveness in our neighborhood through hands-on civic-engagement, to advance a sense of appreciation of our diversity, and to build true relationships.

Join now to enjoy our upcoming events, which are at no cost to JLYC participants.

Upcoming Events

The first meeting will take place on Monday, March 7, at 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Dinner will be served.

Students will begin work on service projects in March, and plans are underway for a service trip to Miami!
