CIRCLE FOUNDATION CONTINUES YOUTH VIOLENCE PREVENTION INITIATIVE
IN BALTIMORE, MD
The Royal Circle Foundation, Inc. continues the Baltimore Youth
Violence Prevention Intiative's
Program initially launched in 2008. The program targets inner city "at risk" youth ages 12-16 and is designed
to offer a new model for primary prevention aimed at providing selected young people with culturally enriching experiences
and those that foster postive self-confidence and esteem.
The "Junior Ambassadors" are involved in a
project that pairs them with their counterparts in the West African Country of Ghana and will provide them with an enriching
cultural experience where tradition and respect are the order of the day.
They participate in a community project,
share experiences with the young people of Ghana, and tour the country learing about its rich culture. The Foundation is currently
accepting applications for 2018 - 2019 period. This will occur over a two week period during the summer season so
as not to interfere with their regular school year programs.
"Junior Ambassadors" are honored at an awards
luncheon and make a formal presentations of their experiences to the Baltimore community at large in the spring following
their cultural exchange.
Applications are currently being accepted for this program and the final deadline date
for receipt of all applications is December 31, 2018. The Selection Committee will reveiew all applications received
and make their finaly decision by February 10, 2019 notifying the winners and their families by the 15th of the same
Family and student orientation for those selected will begin during the last week of April and again
in May before they depart for the summer providing the young people and their families ample time to secure the required
travel documents and immunizations.
It is the belief of the Foundation that with positive motivation and experiences,
"at risk" youth of today will become the "role models for positive change" tomorrow!
