The Junior Leaders initiative engages children and teens in the Citymeals mission. By volunteering and fundraising, they develop positive leadership skills and support homebound elderly New Yorkers across the city. The initiative brings together students, parents, schools, and community groups for community service that is empowering and impactful.
The Junior Leaders are overseen by the Teen Leadership Board. Led by Jonathan Bartfeld and Jack Volpert (Riverdale), the board also includes Ava Abramowitz (Columbia Prep), Jack Coleman (Manhasset), Amanda Mark (Horace Mann), Amanda Pantzer (Trinity), Thomas Petrocelli (Regis), Julian Seinfeld (Fieldston), and Sophie Silbert (Bronx Science).
