Each year, WRI assists hundreds of bright, ambitious, undergraduate students who are striving for a better future despite the daily challenges caused by financial instability.
Through academic courses, leadership training, legal assistance, policy education and advocacy, WRI’s participant-driven model builds essential skills and opens up personal advancement options for people receiving on public assistance. Our staff and interns also collaborate with other activists, legislators and community leaders to defend and promote fair and just policies that remove potential barriers to education.
We continue to celebrate the remarkable progress made by our student leaders at Hunter College and the WRI alumni who are strengthening the city’s workforce in social services, community organizing, public interest law, nursing, education and other disciplines across New York City and beyond. We are especially proud to report that many Leadership Program alums are now pursuing graduate studies.
