To contribute to this mission, our club offers volunteer opportunities at soup kitchens, breakfast runs, and events with organizations such as Back On My Feet. We also plan awareness events, drives, and talks. Overall, we hope to change the negative preconceptions people have about the homeless and emphasize the importance of unconditional help and advocacy.
Stuy Limitless: Limitless is focused on
self-care, self-love, and self-esteem. We believe that confidence is a
key to a person and their happiness. Aiming to build the student body up,
we want to use Limitless as a platform to educate the Stuyvesant community
about mental health advocacy. Mental health is an issue that is commonly
overlooked at Stuyvesant, and we aim to establish Limitless as a safe
space for anyone to seek help and advice on. In addition, Limitless is
one of many advocates that will join campaigns in spreading awareness
and fights stigma by teaching students (through presentations and/or
demonstrations) about coping with mental illnesses and dealing effectively with
stress and other hardships. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Association (MSA): The Muslim Student Association aims to unify the various students throughout the community each week and create a stronger Ummah (Muslim Alliance Community). We facilitate strengthening this community through activism in our communities, diverse fundraisers, and educational ans social meetings. MSA serves not only as a home for students to come back to every Friday after a rough week of exams or projects, but also as a safe space where one can feel comfortable and be able to discuss various issues or thoughts. The highlight for each week are our meetings where we strive to have each member go home with a new stance or perspective on a topic, or to be more informed than when they came in. Together we strive to make MSA a family and always look forward to a new member.
Motto: "Many Faces, One Ummah!" Muslim Students League meets every Friday, 3:40pm - 5:00pm in Room 740.

Stuy South Asian Youth Association (SAYA): Stuyvesant SAYA aims to
foster an understanding of the various issues and ethnic cultures of South Asia and encourage
a sense of belonging in both South Asian and non–South Asian communities.
The purpose of Stuy SAYA is to educate the Stuyvesant student body about the rich cultures of the Indian subcontinent. Our objective is to discuss the current issues of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Sri-Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, and Maldives, and analyze how such events affect South Asian diasporas non-South Asian nations as well.
We hope to take initiative and fund raise to resolve the obstacles troubling the region such as the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, flooding in Nepal, deforestation in Pakistan, air pollution in Bangladesh, and lack of clean water in Afghanistan. SAYA also plans to bring awareness to important social issues affecting the region such as girls’ education, communal divisions, domestic violence, rape, child marriages etc.
However, we plan to celebrate the diversity of South Asia while acknowledging the conflicts affecting it. Each South Asian nation, even specific districts, has their own unique set of values, festivals, and traditions. We aim to hold meetings and commemorate such diversity by celebrating and learning about festivals from each region. Among these festivals are Diwali (festival of lights) from India, Pohela Boishakh (Bengali New Year), Basant (spring festival) in Pakistan, Fagun Purnima (festival of colors) in Nepal, Now Ruz (Afghani New Year), and many more. Aside from festivals, we also plan on hosting movie nights and meetings with games, food, dance, and music from each nation.
SAYA will also discuss the historical struggle each nation (i.e, imperialism, foreign control) faced, each nation’s political and economic relationship with one another, and we will also celebrate each their Independence Day. As part of the Stuy UNITY initiatives, our ultimate community (and non-South Asian) communities have a safe and fun space to learn about their cultures and celebrate their uniqueness.
