Diversity Awareness Initiative for Students Conference

In the past two years, the Affinity Social Justice Club has made encouraged York Prep students involved with (DAIS) Diversity Awareness Initiative for Students. DAIS is an organization dedicated to strengthening our schools and ourselves, through increased knowledge, awareness, and respect for different cultures.  Its members are comprised of students from New York City independent, public, and parochial schools, who wish to discuss and improve human relations within the community and society at large. In the Spring of 2019, 12 York students attended the conference and had incredible experiences. Unfortunately, this year’s conference had to be moved online and therefore only two of our students attended, but the feedback was very positive.
