Hill Youth Action Team

The Hill Youth Action Team was created by YDTRC as a result of community forums and a neighborhood initiative starting in 2005 with a Hill forum sponsored by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. It is made up of a group of high school students that work to improve the Hill neighborhood in New Haven, CT. HYAT is a 5-week summer youth employment opportunity and weekly afterschool program at Wilson Library.
