Movement of Youth received a $20,000 anonymous gift right before the end of 2014. The gift will fuel the partnership between Movement of Youth and the Student Athlete Leadership Academy, a summer academy developed by Dr. Harvey Hinton, III, Assistant Professor of Urban Education at North Carolina Central University. Designed for middle school student-athletes, the academy works to develop student-athletes as effective and vocal team leaders for today and successful worldwide leaders for tomorrow. Hinton says that he believes the students from each program can benefit by gaining exposure to the other through the summer academies that will take place.
The gift will give more students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the enriching summer programs, which will allow them to prepare for college, learn about self-discipline, and remain active while they are on break from school.
As an organization, Movement of Youth is very grateful for the donation and the partnership. We look forward to the amazing opportunities that it will bring about in this new year!
