Each year close to 300 students between the ages of 16 and 21, from over 40 high schools in New York, New Jersey and Chicago, are accepted into the Development School for Youth (DSY) on the basis of their desire to be leaders. The DSY's leadership training is organized as a series of weekly
workshops led by senior executives from some of New York City's leading corporations and law firms. The executives partner with the program, introducing students to the worlds of finance, culture, communications and other leading industries. Students also learn public speaking, how to dress for success, and how to write a resume. All of the students who graduate from the program are placed in paid summer internships provided by sponsoring companies. To download an application for DSY, click here.
