A couple of days ago these young men were fighting and beefing with one another at school and on social media , because they represent different areas.One of the things that we realized is that as , we must create a fun atmosphere for these young men to engage and get to know one another outside of school.Simon and I had a great follow up meeting with the boys today and we will be attending the 76'ers game tomorrow with all of the young men . This is only the first step in building a positive relationship between these young men , so that they can get to know one another outside of their enviorment. #communitybuilding
