MINDS EMPOWERED (Winter/Spring2018)
THE POINT COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION is a non-profit organization 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 sub-standard housing. We believe the area's residents, their talents and aspirations, are The Point's greatest assets. Our mission is to encourage the arts, local enterprise, responsible ecology, and self-investment in the Hunts Point community.

Minds Empowered aims to create a safe space for women-identified, male-identified & gender non-conforming youth. Through a combination of art-making and group discussion participants are given a platform to express themselves freely and become change makers in their communities. This Winter THE POINT CDC is offering 12 stipend M.E. Apprenticeship opportunities. These apprentices will work on a special project focusing on issues of Domestic Violence and how to translate this awareness into community organizing and advocacy. We will work to identify various forms of violence and the effect it has on our personal identities as well as our environment and relationships. Through the use of mixed media, photography, poetry, art-journaling, culinary arts, group outings and on-site visits we will gain insight into the topic. Each M.E. Apprentice will contribute and assist in producing a final project to share experiences and knowledge gained.
