the project

The mission of Project Impact is to provide education, increase self-efficiency, assistance with mentoring, finding jobs, apartments and just one on one support in such a violent community and advocacy to individuals and families. We are dedicated to ending Gun violence, black on black crime. Violence within the community as well as limiting high school dropout. Project Impact strives to spread the Gospel in hope of reviving communities, encouraging & helping others to become mature followers of Christ.

Project Impact (PI) was founded by Ta'Quell Morris-Rodriguez. He initially began this organization by fostering youth that had been engaged in trouble with the law. While assisting, he found a reoccurring pattern in which many stated "feeling they had no one to speak with regarding their issues." PI's objective is to show youth and families that Syracuse, as a community, are here to assist them in making better decisions. We strive to push individuals and families toward enhancing their education and their spirituality and/or beliefs in a higher power. We are currently ran by individuals who committed to volunteering their time for the good of the community.

why we're doing it

The South and West side of Syracuse has a high number of youth and families. According to the local news channel 10 and 2014 Census, high school & middle school dropout rates along with teen pregnancy rates are steadily increasing. A high number of our youth is being killed and incarcerated daily! If we are not allowed the resources needed to reach them, we will continue losing our youth and their families. Our Friends and Family Outreach Weekend will allow us to build relationships within the community and offer services to those in need. This event will allow PI to come into the community to decrease and prevent gang bang, gun violence, suicide and many other criminal activities that are affecting our communities. Many families are impoverished and lack basic needs. Feeding our community will help a mom and in dad who is wondering where their next meal may come from. Together, we can give that teen and parent comfort in knowing Our community Cares!
