We are open to volunteers to assist with community projects that help keep our youth busy, out of harm's way, and away from involvement with violent criminal activity.
"Young people, especially young males, account for a disproportionate amount of community violence. Any effort to reduce violence must involve a special focus on youth. Strategies that add structure and opportunities for youth have been shown to decrease their involvement in violent crime. Youth employment, job mentorship and training, educational support, and behavioral interventions can improve youth outcomes and reduce violence. Some of these strategies require relatively costly individualized therapeutic interventions, but others focused on work and school have been associated with cost-efficient reductions in violence."

Help us, Help Us All!
Target start date early 2023. We will need volunteer coaches and supporters.
Services and resources that can assist in areas such as tutoring, one to one peer support, as well as parent workshops can be offered and available. We have partnerships with experienced, trained, and professional resources to assist our young attendees and parents on site!
