CYC Attends Kraft Foods' "Hoops for Hope"
On July 24th and 25th, one hundred and eleven youth from CYC’s ABC Polk Bros. Youth Center, Centro Nuestro and Fellowship House, attended Kraft Foods' Hoops for Hope event held at the Jacoby Dickens Center Gymnasium at Chicago State University.
Coached by Kraft Foods’ employees, young people from all over the city participated in group drills, competitions, and scrimmages, and received guidance on the importance of education, staying focused, being physically active, and working as a team. The “World’s Greatest Female Ball Handler,” Tanya Crevier was on hand to share her dribbling tips and tricks and motivate these young people to think beyond their current circumstances and focus on creating their own path to success, dreams, and vision.
By supporting our youth and ensuring they have the opportunities necessary to develop vital life skills, CYC is providing a brighter future for our communities.
