Every year, the Center for Community Engagement awards the Rosenblatt Grant to students who aim to expand their current service commitment or contribute to the community in new ways. We are excited to announce the two recipients for the summer Rosenblatt Grant; Emily M. ‘25 and Cybille I. ‘23.
Emily M.’s project on Language Revitalization in San Francisco through the San Francisco Public Library will “strive to promote the learning of local Indigenous languages in the next generation.” Over the summer, Emily will lead workshops for youth to learn vocabulary from the Ohlone peoples, and “towards the end of the summer, there will be a workshop led by speakers from two local American Indian organizations, giving students the opportunity to learn more about the people and culture behind the language and to practice their new vocabulary.”
Cybille I.’s project expands on her work with Soul Space, an arts program she founded to provide arts access for low-income youth. She plans to use the funds to lead-free art workshops for elementary-aged youth through the Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose.
Congratulations, Emily and Cybille!
