Good Afternoon Everyone!
So, we left off last week talking about our 1st Annual Male Empowerment Conference 2021. (Yes, we will be getting back to that topic shortly.) First, we at Project HYPE would like to turn the attention back to one of our programs, Men of Elmont. If you have been keeping up with our blogs, then you are up to date with what this group of young men has accomplished. For those of you who are new, here is a quick rundown.
Due to our Mr. Ramos connections and efforts, these young men submitted a video to their local police commissioner in Nassau County, Long Island. In this video, they discussed and expressed their experiences with dealing with local police officers. Some of the stories were in a positive light, and some were in a not so positive light. Along with discussing these topics, these young men also expressed what they believe to be helpful towards what can better their community. Something so simple turned into something impactful for these mentees. Their video was submitted as apart of the Nassau County Police Academy Training, exposure on a news outlet, and interactions with their local police officers.
Now you are all caught up, here is the latest update. The same young men were given another interview this past week on News12, alongside Elmont Memorial High School Principal Kevin Dougherty and Project HYPE founder Ray Ramos. We are ecstatic to see the youth thrive from the success of their video submission. Images are attached below this blog if you would like to see our Project HYPE crew in action.
Despite being in this pandemic, we at Project HYPE are working and building our youth, community, ourselves, and this non-for-profit. You will soon see all of our goals and plans fall into place.
