Sports programming and afterschools
What problem would you like to solve?
Sports are very big in communities of color. We need to make access to sports training more accessible to communities of color.
Why is it important to solve? Why is it relevant for the community?
This gets people active, which promotes better health. This also helps keep kids off of the street to make sure that they are not participating in illegal activities and giving them something better to do.
What idea do you have to address the problem?
We need community basketball teams with coaches that know what they are doing. If we have community basketball teams, you promote leadership and competition. People will stay healthy. And this way you can motivate kids to participate. This will keep people busy, giving them extra help in sports that can help them be competitive when they go to college and get scholarships, and potentially a career. While also giving jobs to people to coach teams, jobs to people who maybe need a secondary job or a side job.
Who would that help?
All young people in the community.
What neighborhood would benefit from your idea?
