To eliminate teenage idleness in Bed-Stuy and neighboring communities in central Brooklyn through education, recreation and partnerships.
1. Academic Achievement: We "incentivize" students to maintain a minimum grade point average of 75%, graduate high school and reinforce learning by providing a family atmosphere of rules, expectations and consequences. Ninety-five percent of PR-G participants graduate high school.
2. Personal Development: Annual programs like Community Pride Day and the Knicks Poetry Slam allow students to volunteer and engage in team-building activities that emphasize community engagement and the pursuit of higher education. Students gain self-confidence and discipline through martial arts Martial Arts participation and they take workshops in financial literacy, health and nutrition, healthy relationships, urban community, and life preparation. Our students receive program benefits as they open a bank account, acquire a learner’s permit or state ID, create a resume, read particular books, apply for scholarships, present schedules, and visit medical facilities for checkups GYN care, and blood work.
3. Job Readiness: PR-G’s Foot Soldier’s program earns money for participants and provides them with simple soft skills and business etiquette relative to all work environments such as timeliness, communication, motivation, problem solving, following instructions, appropriate ways to call out and request leave, working with quality, being committed to responsibilities, taking on supervisory roles, and teamwork.
We Bang and encourage others to bang by giving time, ideas, money, and/or other resources to develop one's self and or community.
