The goal of the Play To Win program is to increase the graduation rates and help prevent young males from becoming incarcerated. We plan to instill in them the desire to become life-long learners and give each of them the tools to develop a ten year life plan that will demonstrate productive choices. We envision this model being replicated across the country in future years.
The mission of Play To Win is to motivate and prepare males in grades 9 to 12 to embrace a set of core values and understand the importance of 21st Century skills that will contribute to enriching their path in life to become productive citizens.
We will provide a year round program and a six week intensive summer program held on a college campus. The programming will teach students the 21st century skills, create quality opportunities that relate the curriculum to real life and prepare these young men to become actively engaged in their community.
