Reducing conflict between young people of different backgrounds
PalmettoSpeed will be involved in a youth partnership project where serious conflict between young people of two cultural groups has been identified. The Track and Field parties will act as a wider community involvement process for children and young adults of each family. Everyone will be given the opportunity to run in a Track and Field event at no cost to them. Each event will have 1st thru 5th place, with ribbons given to each place winner. Each track event will also involve integrated activities that focus on study habits, eating habits, and self motivation techniques.
Bringing residents together for one common cause.
Having experienced a Track and Field eventful day, residents will be given the opportunity to have dialogue about all they have seen and heard. As part of the post-event survey, children will be offered information and admission to up coming local track and field events, as well as educational classes to enhance math and reading fundamentals.
