Andrew Neal, Brookside CDC

Brookside CDC exists to create opportunities for renewal and transformation in the Brookside neighborhood on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. One major initiative of Brookside CDC is Brookside Community Play, a play-based approach to youth development. By using the power of play, we’re connecting a youth’s passion with career possibilities. Brookside CDC believes that empowering youth to be decision makers and vocal advocates will only improve our communities.
