WHAT WE DO TO EMPOWER AT-RISK YOUTH
The amount of challenges facing young people growing up in poverty are too many to count. At-risk youth are more likely to drop out of school, become teen parents, join gangs, commit crimes, and go to prison. In 2015, GYM founder Taurus Montgomery, shared his vision with peers from Andrews University to help impact at-risk youth in Benton Harbor, MI, which was ranked the #1 most violent city in the state. The Movement was born with the desire to change that narrative. Teams of student volunteers were formed with the goal of providing youth in the community with the tools they needed to overcome adversity.
