Alcoa's Hunts Point Team
City Year is a national service organization that unites diverse groups of 17-24 year olds for a year of full-time community service and leadership development. New York City is one of 15 cities across the country where corps members serve as tutors, mentors and role models to young people in schools and after school programs, as well as helping enhance the appearance of parks and schools.
In New York, teams are also located in the Lower East Side, Harlem, and East Harlem, Long Island City. Corona, Bed-Stuy, East New York, and Hunts Point where they partner with a school and after-school program.
The team in Hunts Point serves as teacher’s aide at PS 48 and helps run an after-school program at The Point. We also lead service projects within the Bronx community. These service projects include turning a vacant lot into a community garden or painting graffiti to create vibrant street murals.
