Project Topic: Youth Engagement
Project Description: Youth will learn basic writing skills, reading skills, team building skills, positive decision making skills and build self-esteem. Youth will assist in writing a play that deals with gang and gun violence. The youth will perform their play throughout the Collinwood area during the summer months. Students will be served snacks daily and twelve students will receive a $500.00 check upon completing the program.
Community Engagement: Our goal is to make the neighborhood safer by building better relationships between the youth, neighbors, Cleveland Police Department and the Cleveland Public Libraries. This play will educate the community about the dangers of gangs and gun violence in our community, and help our youth make better decisions. Creating a safer Collinwood!
