Healing begins with faith
Hoops 4 Health
Imani/YXP Coalition collaborated and created a program that would provide essential lessons to foster healthy development - Hoops 4 Health. Our main goal for Hoops 4 Health is to promote health awareness and education, while also providing the participating youth with a familiar and fun environment like basketball. Imani Clinic volunteers provide health-related stations and resources for participants and visitors.
Held every 2nd Saturday of the month, Sunrise Breakfast is a community engagement program. Alongside healthy food demonstrations, children's activity stations & hot brunch served, Sunrise Breakfast is where community members are informed about Youth Explosion's progress, and of local resources available to them. Imani Clinic volunteers provide health-related stations, assist with food preparation, aid with children's stations, and more!
There are many more resources provided, and programs held, by Youth Explosion. For more information, please visit their website!
