During the summer, if grants permit, we provide hot meals and snacks, fishing, picnicking and field trips. We have a large Children's library, a recreation room with large ping- pong table, play table games, use media center due homework, providing an environment where youngsters can feel invested in as they own. This serves an important purpose through these types of gatherings and events which is to bring together youth of differing ethnicity, race and culture. This provides a forum in which they can learn to work, play and group together as well as celebrate their differences. The desired impact, is to decrease overt racism in all communities and in the lives of our youth for tomorrow.
