The also article recognizes the project’s value to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem, stating, “The Boys & Girls Club space will include an administrative wing, a hangout area for teenagers, and a digital media lab, said Executive Director Dominique Jones, allowing the organization to double the number of young people it serves.”
“It’s exciting to see the momentum behind the P.S. 186 project. The impact it will have on our youth and the Harlem community is tremendous. The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem has worked for many years to make this happen. I applaud their vision and tenacity,” said Hardy Young.
