Winter Games 2020
We are so thankful for our second year of partnering with US Venture on the Winter Games. Every year we are able to bring 50 black youth who experience many firsts for the first time. Our staff and volunteers watched as black youth ice skated, skied, participated in slopes, and other winter games with so much tenacity and joy. Following these events we got so much feedback from our youth not just about becoming future competitors of those games but about their new found joy of winter sports and the winter season itself. US Venture is so generous with our program. They not only sponsor the event for us, but they also reach out to supply the kids with coats, hats and gloves, and winter boots as well as provide a meal -- That support is more than just a one day event. Throughout the year our staff, parents, and volunteers noted that with those supplies we watch black youth participate in more snow ball fights, hill climbing, and just being more present, social, and active with warm and appropriate gear during the winter time.
Thank you so much US Venture for your investment in our work, our young people, and our families! You truly amplify our work and uplift black lives!
