Teens from Brooklyn and across the New York City are learning how to create change in their community.
More than 100 students are participating in the YMCA's 12-week "Teens Take the City" program. The teenagers met with city leaders Saturday to learn a lesson on how to influence their community. Officials say the program focuses on health, environment and education.
Officials say the goal of the program is to teach students about the political process and improve voter turnout numbers. During the course of the program, now in its second year, students will have a chance to take over the post of borough president for a day.
