MODEL NEW YORK STATE SENATE SESSION OPPORTUNITY

The Model New York State Senate Session Project is an annual leadership development program, a collaboration of the New York State Assembly and the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Task Force of the New York State Legislature. Each year, more than 60 CUNY and SUNY students are brought together for a series of intensive training seminars on state policy formulation, legislative processes, representation and leadership. CUNY students are selected for participation from their home campuses through the offices of their respective college presidents, provosts and student affairs officers. The seminars include visits from prominent NYS legislators and guest lecturers. The program culminates with students debating bills on the floor of the New York State Senate chamber in Albany. Participating students are also given the opportunity to compete for scholarship awards. Through participation in the process of legislative decision-making, students further their organizational, research and public speaking skills by means of a model legislative seminars. By working on a legislative agenda that they develop, the students play an integral role in their pursuit of a public service education. Moreover, they are introduced to a "hands-on" approach to involvement in the political and policy processes that affect them, their families and their communities.
