NYNY Welcomes Its 2014 Class of Fellows and Mentor Coaches
We are excited to welcome the 2014 NYNY Class of Fellows and Mentor Coaches!
The 2014 class will be NYNY’s fifth programmatic year in operation. This was our most competitive year to date, and it was extremely challenging to select the final 100 Fellows and 100 Mentor Coaches due to the outstanding applicant pool.
We received close to 300 applications from an impressive variety of CUNY freshmen students who are the first in their family to go to college. NYNY staff and volunteers interviewed 200 Fellow applicants. The 2014 Fellows are representing 18 different CUNY campuses and boast a strong 3.7 incoming GPA.
Our Mentor Coaches are an accomplished group of individuals representing a wide variety of industries. They are bringing valuable professional experience and industry insights to the NYNY community.
We’d like to extend a special thank you to our current and former Mentor Coaches, the Mentor Leadership Council, Young Leadership Board members, and America Needs You Governing Board members for their assistance with the application review process.
