REVERSE THE TIDE OF INNER-CITY VIOLENCE. Redirect the energies of the adolescent community through mentoring and volunteerism. Teach them that men build institutions and do not engage in self-destructive behavior.

VOLUNTEERS GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY. Your talents are sorely needed. It's time to share yours skills with our youth. We no longer can depend on the next guy to do the job.
