The Doris Rosenblum Leadership Awards -- May 15, 2008

Named after Doris Rosenblum, a long time Upper West Side community activist and Board Member of Strycker’s Bay Neighborhood Council, each year The Youth Leadership Awards will honor young people that have demonstrated commitment and leadership in the areas of youth development and education.

Doris was a mentor to many. As an advocate for public education and leader of many school and parent associations, Doris help lead a movement for smaller schools and greater community control of public education. Among her many accomplishes, Doris worked to establish the first alternative high school on the Upper West Side -- West Side High School. Several Strycker’s Bay staff, including the Executive Director and Youth Program Director, are alumni of the school. Her impact on the lives of young people has been great and helped develop some of today’s West Side leaders.
