Point Community Development Corp.
May 29, 2012

The Point CDC is home for every artist, activist, community organizer, a safe space for students to come learn how to organize their ideas into arts or some other form of multimedia. As an adult volunteer, I've learned how to solve problems, conflict resolve, provide proper encouragement, praise, and empathically listen to others. I've learned how to youth develop and have been employed by some really great and prestigious non for profits throughout the Bronx and East Harlem area. They have talents such as TATS CRU, International Center for Photography, and a lot of art guru's constantly teaching kids how to express themselves in visual arts. I can't think of any other place that provides students with so many resources such as the Point CDC.
