Event description

Description

The DMV “Draft Day” winter football camp is a three-day skills and development program for youth, grades 5 – 8, in the D.C. area. This camp will provide our participants with the skills and knowledge to facilitate a successful and safe football career, as well as develop their financial acumen. Our goal is to create new pathways that lead our at risk inner-city youth away from the negative experiences they face day to day within their district and towards new and positive ones! The timing of our camp is specifically targeted for the holiday season as we have recognized a spike in juvenile delinquency. According to the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Juvenile Report the data shows within the past 12-months there has been 322 juvenile robbery arrests, 42 of which occurred during the holiday season / winter break (Dec – Jan).

The DMV “Draft Day” winter football camp is an opportunity to combat this statistic and shine a more positive and productive light on our areas youth. This learning experience will not only develop and mentor kids, but provide high school seniors a chance to coach and teach the younger participants through their shared passion for football, while earning some additional revenue for the Holiday season.

Additionally, participants will benefit from three one-hour financial literacy lectures presented by Washington D.C. native and former NFL player from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arrelious Benn via his PhoneHome program. The PhoneHome Financial Scholars program is an educational initiative comprised of two digital learning courses specially designed to introduce financial skills and learnings to children in the early stages of cognitive development. The DMV “Draft Day” winter football camp will be held at the Athletic Republic Capitol Region facility in District Heights, Maryland and is scheduled for Thursday, December 27th through Saturday, December 29th from 9am to 2pm.

At a time when our youth hold the key to our nation’s success, it is imperative we provide them with influential and productive outlets, like the DMV “Draft Day” camp, to direct their focus and push them to grow the skills and knowledge they need to lead! This program deserves your support, but more importantly our youth do too!
