NYCDOE Bronx Borough Student Advisory Council (BSAC)

Diversify Our Education: In regards to the curriculum of the NYCDOE, members of the Bronx Borough Student Advisory Council intend to conduct a workshop expressing the importance of Culturally Responsive Education and its effects on youth voice in NYC public schools. Students facilitators will engage the audience in multiple hands-on activities based on cultural awareness and educational/social issues, i.e., high graduation rate, dropout rate. Beginning with an interactive ice breaker, participants will engage in a matching game where they attempt to match specific statistics to the various ethnic student sub-groups. Afterwards, participants will engage in a fun sing-along where they relate “culture” to a synonym of their choice in efforts of arriving at a consensus of a working definition of culture. Following this activity, participants will be divided into four groups to read and analyze an article centered around a racial issue. A restorative circle will help facilitate the dialogue among participants regarding the articles. Finally, facilitators will lead a progressive conversation about the importance and need for a culturally responsive education/curriculum. The expected outcomes: (1) awareness of restorative circle practices (2) promote student voice, and (3) gain knowledge about culturally responsive education/curriculum.

Why the Black and Brown Birds Can't Fly: The Impacts of Trauma to Prison Pipeline on Queer and Transgender People of Color: I want to focus on the impacts of the trauma to prison pipeline on queer and transgender people of color, especially youth. I will present a workshop on what causes young queer and transgender people of color to be more susceptible to the trauma to prison pipeline and how modalities of healing justice and transformative justice can transform and disrupt the system of pain and violence that prisons uphold. Sharing this work will highlight a significant intersection prison abolition and create an avenue to re-envision current discourses surrounding transformative justice and trauma. If there is space created for trauma recovery and care, then the pipeline to prison will be significantly destabilized.

Health Opportunities High School: Health Opportunities High School, together with The Single Shepherd Initiative and The Day One RAP Program, officially launched its first girls group called, “Love Thyself, Young Ladies Empowerment”. The group was formed due to the high levels of crisis and trauma-based amongst the 9th grade thru 12th grade female population in the school. The goal of this girl’s group is to support students in the process of changing the narratives of their lives by beginning to embrace the authentic person they were destined to be. It was necessary for our girls to see that it was okay to appreciate and love their individual uniqueness without having to feel pressured to conform to their situations, negative experiences, or someone else’s definition of who they are. We utilize The Restorative Circle Model, education around different forms of self-care, art actives, and other creative ways of expression which allows for everyone to be heard and respected. Our motto is “I Love Me”.

L.O.V.E/Listen Observe Value Embrace: We will explore self-care, self-love and self-acceptance by guiding the participants through various activities such as, brainstorming, exercising, and expressive writing. The intended outcome is to learn healthy ways of taking care of yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally which is the beginning of valuing embracing, and loving your authentic self.

What's the T?: Bringing Trans Kids to the Center of our Schools: Trans people often exist at the periphery or in the shadows of our schools and society.

Whether you identify as trans or not, we invite you to come and learn more about gender (everyone has a gender) and yourself. Join us in reimagining how schools can be transformed into spaces of exploration and affirmation for trans kids. Allies will learn tips on how they can be a better human and support trans folks. #TransIsBeautiful #NonBinary

Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School Peer Mediators: At Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, our way of addressing problems, disciplinary issues, and violations of our community norms is to talk it out.

With RJ, our goal is to create a healthy, equitable, caring school community by preventing and addressing behavioral disruption in a non-punitive way that supports accountability and enables healing. Our trained peer mediators are RJ leaders in the school who help to facilitate Circles and peacefully resolve conflicts.

How Our Lives Link Altogether! (H.O.L.L.A!): We develop and sustain grassroots youth of color leadership through healing-centered youth community organizing training. We work for a world where young people from historically oppressed communities are engaged in movements for social justice and resistance. We see our work as movement- building, as intersectionally bound to other movements around the world, and as historically tied to the work of generations before us. We provide spaces where youth can explore and heal from trauma and historical oppression while transforming their communities.

Healing Justice Circle: Tapping into Vulnerability and Cultivating Hope : In this workshop be prepared to grapple with vulnerability as method for deep relationship building, and for exploring oppression and accountability.

Other aims are to gather critical feedback and solidarity from the larger New York City community on ways to we can all better Heal together!

IntegrateNYC Inc: IntegrateNYC develops youth leaders who repair the harms of segregation and build authentic integration and equity.

We believe in the power of young people to lead today and shape the future. We have several elements to our program that are intended to support students in developing their personal, professional, and civic leadership skills.

#RetireSegregation: In schools, we learn in 1954 the Supreme Court held in Brown vs Board of Education that “separate but equal facilities are inherently unequal.” In 2019, our schools are more segregated in NYC now than they were before that case. Separate is #STILLNOTEQUAL. After 65 years, it’s time to #RetireSegregation. We, the students, must lead that change. We are the best experts on how to create schools that serve us.

R!SE: R!se is a nonprofit organization founded by students for students. At R!se we work to empower students in underserved schools and communities through creative writing. This outlet promotes healthy coping mechanisms and the search for self love while simultaneously functioning as an academic activity. An empowered student who knows they deserve better will fight for better, and R!se is here to support students along the way.

Writing a Better Future with R!SE: This is a creative writing workshop where students find self love and empowerment. There is a mental front to the war of systematic oppression that largely goes unnoticed. Disproportionality in education devalues students so that they believe that they do not deserve the opportunity to succeed. This is a space to collaborate creatively with other students, listen to each other's stories, and learn about the psychological effects of oppression.

Teens Take Charge: Teens Take Charge is a student-led organization that advocates for educational equity in New York City. We are dedicated to elevating student voice in the public school system. We are currently going through our campaign, #IntegrateNOW, which focuses on having the mayor approve of an integration plan that Teens Take Charge developed on January 2018 to racially, socioeconomically, and academically integrate New York City’s 480 public high schools. In 2014, UCLA came out with a study that confirmed that New York State has the most segregated public school system in the country. We want to change that with our city. For this campaign, we have already sat with the Department of Education various times to go over our Enrollment Equity Plan to integrate our high schools. However, seeing that there wasn’t much progress, we took the step to give our Department of Education and the Mayor the chance to sit down with us to discuss an enrollment plan that can be implemented for the next school year. This discussion takes place on May 17th with the first Deputy Mayor and the Chancellor and his cabinet. This is one out of 2 events for this campaign.

Teens Take Charge: Building Equity in Schools: We wish to demonstrate how students have been active in reforming the New York City public school system and to allow members of Teens Take Charge to express their vision for the future of public education. We hope to spark a conversation around school segregation and get the audience to understand that in 2019, 65 years after Brown v. Board of Education, our school system is as segregated as ever, and we must fix it.

Youth Communication: Youth Communication provides powerful, teen-written stories and professional development to help educators and youth workers engage struggling youth. Our literacy-rich training model helps teachers, after-school workers, counselors, and other professionals to connect with the teens they serve and build their social and emotional learning skills.Our stories, developed in a rigorous writing program, are uniquely compelling to youth whose voices are missing from mainstream content. The stories model social and emotional learning, and show teens how to make positive changes in their lives. They also motivate teens to read and write.

My Story, Our Story: Raising Awareness of Disproportionality Using Teen-Written Stories: In this interactive workshop, we will read a story by one of our young, NYC-based writers, and through that story, explore the effects of disproportionality on their everyday life and how adults provided guidance and empathy along the way. After reading the story, participants will engage in activities such as group discussion, collaborative brainstorm, and personal reflection, all with the goal of helping practitioners develop tools for addressing and dismantling disproportionality.
