This year, the EYB represents five local high schools including Rochester High School (Rahi Shah, Abhro Debnath), Adams High School (Victoria Cattermole), International Academy East (Maya Abbou), International Academy OKMA (Lia Vettraino), Notre Dame Preparatory (Haley Evans), and Stoney Creek High School (Ananya Prashar).

Joined by their families, EYB members (both 2020-2021 and 2021-2022) were invited to partake in festivities including words of wisdom and appreciation for members shared by Kathy Losinski, Executive Director, group photos, and light refreshments. “Volunteerism is a strong positive force in our community, and is apparent through the participation of Neighborhood House’s Executive Youth Board,” said Leigh Ann Grubbs, EYB mentor. “These students give their time and energy to help others and are committed to motivating their peers to do the same. They are shining examples of how everyone can make a positive difference in the life of someone else.”
