Youth should always have the opportunity to solve for challenges in their communities utilizing resources available to them. This is even more evident as we work with a specifc group of young black men known as the "ATL Water Boyz". As an organization we have adopted the corner of Ivan Allen/Joseph E Boone and Northside as we work to continue relationship building in an effort to help them utilize their natural skills to transform their lives.
