April 2024 Event Recap

SpringIntoActionWeek (9)
Youngsters across greater Newark got an opportunity this week to participate in prevention activities aimed at engaging youth and fostering positive community interactions during our CBVI program's "Spring Into Action to Conquer Violence" spring break series. The events, which were hosted at the West Side Park Community Center in Newark, took a proactive approach to addressing community needs while promoting youth engagement and mitigating potential risks associated with increased violent incidents. The weeklong series included various activities including flag football, basketball, mental health and wellness group talks, a "Real Life Monopoly" life skills project, and a Brush-n-Slush painting exercise.
