BROOKLYN - Students of all ages are brightening up the borough, thanks to an initiative by the nonprofit group Publicolor.

The program allows students who may be behind in school to earn credits by helping the community.

Publicolor matches high school students with elementary students to paint playgrounds, including the one at P.S. 24. The students also take science-based classes.

"They're going from usually failing in school to succeeding and becoming mentors in the community," says organizer Vladimir Tobar.
