Save Our Youth
"Our aim is to be a key role in the self improvement and progressive process of youth ages 6-17 in the Brownsville and East New York area."
Our "Save Our Youth" campaign consists of our "Mannies, Nannies and Grannies" after school program. This program will bring together teen aged mothers and fathers along with nurturing elders in the community to provide an educational and well monitored environment filled with positive energy to teach them "Economic Awareness 101" and "Talent Appreciation"
Save Our Streets
"Our aim here is to engage existing resident associations and helping them patrol the streets and helping neighbors that are in need."
We intend to "Save Our Streets" by conducting our first ever "Operation Safe Passage" campaign. This program will provide our young people with a safe route that is carefully monitored to and from school. It will provide elders with assistance in crossing the street safely, in addition to helping them home on a safe route that will allow them to arrive home with their groceries and/or baggage intact.
Squash The Beef
"Our aim is to broaden our children's vocabulary and teach them to use literary devices to ensure healthy debates instead of violent behaviors."
Our "Squash The Beef" campaign will consist of us maintaining our "Friday Night Youth Ciphers". These ciphers will provide young people with an outlet to channel their energies via open mic sessions. Youths will eagerly teach and learn the importance of cooperating with each other as opposed to using violence to solve disagreements. They will articulate their thoughts and feelings through spoken word, singing, rapping, dancing and dramatic improvisation.
