(Activists Coming to Inform Our Neighborhood)
THE POINT’s teen community leadership group A.C.T.I.O.N. engages stipend youth activists three times per week from the community who work to identify social and environmental justice issues facing Hunts Point with the goal of developing ongoing youth-led solutions. A.C.T.I.O.N. members receive training in three core areas of leadership, media and environmental policy. The program provides strong academic support throughout the school year and assists with summer internship placement for all A.C.T.I.O.N. participants.
