THE POINT CDC - ACTION/WOMEN PROJECTS

THE POINT Community Development Corporation is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) dedicated to youth development and the cultural and economic revitalization of the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx.  We work with our neighbors to celebrate the life and art of our community, an area traditionally defined solely in terms of its poverty, crime rate, poor schools and substandard housing.  We believe the area’s residents, their talents and aspirations, are THE POINT’s greatest assets.

THE POINT offers a multi-faceted approach to asset-based community development.  It’s programming falls within three main headings - Youth Development, Arts and Culture and Community Development - all aimed at the comprehensive revitalization of Hunts Point.

NEIGHBORHOOD DEFENDER SERVICE OF HARLEM - STATE PROGRAM

Students Taking Action Towards Empowerment (STATE) was created in 1999 to bridge the gap in understanding between young people and the police. STATE developed into a comprehensive youth leadership development program whose goal was preventing youth incarceration and negative interactions between youth and the criminal justice system.

The program focused on training youth about their legal rights and how to deal with police interactions. Teenage Youth Advocates were trained in criminal law, social justice advocacy, conflict resolution, video production, and public speaking. Youth Advocates then went into the community and taught Know Your Rights workshops to their peers.
