Sarah Lawrence students Evelyn Huntington and Rylan Cullen have joined the CURB team as interns participating in the Intensive Semester in Yonkers (ISY) program. The students are assisting our staff with education programs and other tasks around the Center such as animal care, water quality monitoring, and park clean-ups.

The ISY program, which is organized by the SLC Office of Community Partnerships & Service Learning, is open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors. This interdisciplinary semester-long program (15 credits) provides students with the chance to explore in-depth some of the social, historical, economic, and environmental issues that face contemporary urban America while they also explore, through working in local agencies, opportunities to meet these challenges.

The theme for the Intensive Semester in Yonkers varies from year to year. This year the program theme is, "Building Communities in Yonkers: Theatre, Knowledge, and Action." Faculty members this semester include Una Chung, Sarah Wilcox, and Christine Farrell.
