Millennium Fellowship Project: Youth Anti-Violence Project
Our project will consist of hosting a basketball tournament for the young children to engage with each other and have some fun. It will also consist of educating the kids at the same time. It will teach them on violence and how we can work together to decrease the crime/violent acts in their neighborhood and their surrounding neighborhoods. We hope with the presentation that we put on and a couple of guest speakers they will leave our project enlightened.
