At-Risk Kids Hoop it Up

At-Risk Kids Hoop it Up

40 kids were in attendance on Thursday, May 24 at the Wittman Village Community Center to participate in a Streetwise Partners basketball tournament. Established by Proteus in 1992, the Streetwise program is implemented by Neighborhood Youth Counselors who intervene in the lives of at-risk youth who are socially and economically predisposed to joining gangs. Streetwise incorporates team building and teamwork, sportsmanship, social development, and diversion through friendly competition as the youth participate in neighborhood leagues with youth from other communities and ethnic backgrounds.  

One of the youth in attendance was quoted as saying, “It was very important that this event happened because of all the recent tension in the community between our rival gangs.  This program is important for us because it teaches how to get along and stay focused on a goal.”

This is just one of many tournaments to come this summer.
