Kids and families from the Long Island City community gathered at PS 112 for a day of mural painting, light construction, community gardening, and a neighborhood block party on Saturday, May 14th. Festivities were kicked off with presentations by local leaders. In the words of PS 112 Principal Campos, “City Year has transformed our school in many wonderful ways. The level of energy instantly increased with the presence of the highly motivated, highly spirited and high energetic team of City Year young adults. The physical environment has been transformed as if by magic year after year.”
96 High School Students Join Forces With City Year To Transform Harlem School
On November 13th, 96 students from 16 high schools participated in the City Year NY Service Day at PS 112/206 in East Harlem, sponsored by StudentsforService and JSA. These students were part of a team, which, alongside City Year corps members, were able to transform a school where City Year has been serving since 2008. In just four hours, these students painted 25 murals, a large welcome sign, and 20 pairs of memory tiles; built and painted 10 bookshelves and three cubbies; and shellacked three existing mural benches. Four additional service opportunities will be available to high school students through StudentsforService and City Year during this academic year.
