Big plans for 2013 (Goal: Getting the Youth involved!)

With knowledge, talent, support and resources comes with responsibility.
My partners and I sat down and discussed not only what we want to accomplish in 2013, imagebut WHO we wanted to affect. The youth IS our future! And with that said, what we would like to see happen is the youth off the streets and lead productive lives. We are aiming to create a non profit youth program called “Round by Round” that involves self disciple, nutrition, competition and self defense. Someone asked us a very interesting question..”what is going to keep the kids interested?” that will be challenging but we are up for the challenge!
This is where the talent, resources and support will be on our side. We will be implementing exciting boxing and self-defense programs along with seminars and “meet and greets” with top local up and coming contenders and the game.
We are going to be targeting high school and elementary students, especially students battling low esteem and bullying problems.
Our goal: Make an impact in the community!

I want to thank my partners Ray Rosa CEO with Cleveland boxing and MMA scene and Luis Cartagena from Minority Business Development Agency for sharing ideas and the motivation in trying to make a difference
