BROOKLYN - The city's Summer Youth Wrap Program has started linking people on probation with communities that need help in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Communities in Gravesend, Floyd Bennett Field, Canarsie and Coney Island will see 450 probation clients ages 14-18 who will earn $1,440 for their storm recovery work during the summer.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that since Summer Wrap launched, participants have served meals, repaired homes and distributed food and water to communities in need.

The program will run for seven weeks.
