Rocking the Boat's New HQ in Hunts Point

I took this video on March 25 of Jhairo Colon, an 18-year-old program assistant at Rocking the Boat, at the organization's celebration of their impressive new facility on Edgewater Road next to Hunts Point Riverside Park. Rocking the Boat trains teens in boatbuilding and they develop leadership and job skills along the way. As RTB likes to say, "Kids don't just build boats at Rocking the Boat, boats build kids."

Colon has been with Rocking the Boat for four years. He lives in the Fordham Road area and attends Lehman College. For more information on Rocking the Boat, go to www.rockingtheboat.org.
