Leon Rainbow paints a mural with IYI(Isles Youth Institute)

“Trenton Makes” mural was designed by world-renowned artist Mr. Leon Rainbow and the students of Isles Youth Institute Evening under the guidance of Stacy Heading.

In collaboration with the City of Trenton Recreation Dept, together we created the mural Trenton Makes in the foyer of the Westward Center located at 351 Prospect Street Trenton NJ.

This is just one part of the IYI beautification project. Over the summer, the students painted the inside of the gymnasium and NJ Youth Corp, painted the foyer along with the help of city staff Mr. Ron Clark and assistant.

The IYI beautification project is a service-learning project that will allow our students to give back to the community where they live. During the beautification project, they will receive volunteer hours, work experience, and increase their leadership ability. The beautification service-learning project hopes to establish a reduction in crime.
