Summer Basketball League a Win for Roxbury Community

09.06.2016

For seven weeks this summer MPDC in collaboration with Winn Companies worked together with local youth between the ages of 7-17 in the 4th Annual Summer Rox Basketball Tournament held at a community park near Madison Park Village.  The basketball league provided mentoring opportunities for parents and local adults who offered their time to help engage youth and reduce violence.  Over 40 youth and their families participated.  A huge congrats to VIP Program Coordinator, Stanley Dominique, Marcus Kohlan, MPV Resident Service Coordinator, and MPDC resident Yohansey Garcia for all of their hard work on this initiative!  Enjoy a few photos in our Flickr album here.
