why we're doing it

This project addresses the issue with youth violence and property damage, by providing the youth with a safe space as an alternative option  to engage in productive activities.  The surrounding area of the location of the program has a lot of youth, approximately 3 elementary schools within a 15 minute walk. This program addresses sports, recreation arts, crafts and mentoring.
