Neighborhood Corps Students

Groups of youth from eight areas – from Clark Fulton, Hough, Kinsman, Mt. Pleasant, Slavic Village, St. Clair Superior, Union Miles and West Park – were selected for the Mayor’s Neighborhood Corps. They worked throughout the summer on beautification projects in their neighborhoods from painting to gardening to clearing littered areas. The program, in its first year, was done in partnership with the Division of Recreation, the Office of Prevention, Intervention and Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults as well as Youth Opportunities Unlimited and a number of local community development organizations.
