A group of 10th and 11th grade York Prep students participated in The Spitzer Institute for Tomorrow’s Leaders Forum at the 92nd St. Y on December 3, 2006, as part of both the Social Studies program and Community Service.
“The Age of Terrorism: Will It Ever End?” was the topic of discussion led by Dr. Ralph Buultjens, a professor at New York University and Cambridge University. Dr. Buultjens is a speaker at the UN, a frequent commentator for the BBC and other world media, and a task force participant at the Council on Foreign Relations.
York Prep students were encouraged to think critically about this contemporary issue at the forefront of our national and international dialogue and to understand the importance of taking an active role in shaping a democratic society.
Over 30 York Prep students took part in the program and participated in the discussion. All of them gained insight and felt it was an enriching experience.
