Young men with Dreams

We asked three young men walking from Fairfield Ave what they saw as priorities for the neighborhood.

One said that the young people need more activities and opportunities.  When he was growing up there was a summer job program for young people.  He does not see the same number of activities and for him, violence is the result.

Another guy talked about a basketball and mentoring program idea he had developed to teach the young people skills while also playing basketball.  There are a lot of good ideas like this that people from the neighborhood share regularly.  How do we connect them with the resources and support to make these good visions and dreams a reality?
