MAKING A FULLEFFECT IN YOUR COMMUNITY
In 2010, Full Effect Group was established as a 501 c3 non-profit organization with the purpose of providing a safe haven where inner-city youth participate in a comprehensive program of journalism. We supplied the necessary resources to local schools for training students interested in gaining skills, knowledge, and firsthand experience in the field of broadcasting, communication, and other related areas of expertise. This journalism program has been a recipient of the Verizon Foundation Grant Award. As an USTA grant recipient of Grow The Game of Tennis, allowed Mingo Tennis to offer activations in NYCHA.
In addition to training individuals to develop or improve skills as amateur radio operators, we are now seeing kids enjoy the game of tennis. As they hit forehands and backhands, yelling “nice shot” from across the net, they are developing well-stroked balls, and more importantly, good sportsmanship and social skills such as learning how to shake hands cordially at the end of a match. This provides kids with a sense of respect
The objective of Craig Mill Community Fun Day is to inform and educate youth in Craig Mill on internet awareness, the importance of staying in school and being a role model in your community. We have a five year goal of having 20 to 30 kids in the Full Effect program.
Providing three computers in a center, where kids ages 5-13 can utilize for weekly use.
In addition, Full Effect Group recognized individuals in Craig Mill for their work promoting success among youth through education and mentoring. Donation helped support the construction project of Craig Mill Basic School.
