While their children are learning basketball skills at our yearly “Beyond the Court” basketball clinics, parents of participants, as well as other concerned community members, attend a parent workshop, “Parenting in Difficult Times,” to help them develop parenting strategies that will enable them to become healthy role models while providing an opportunity for healing.

The goal is to provide parents the skills necessary to help their children correct behaviors that are detrimental to the family and society. Through sharing their experiences, the workshop also provides parents an opportunity to plan an agenda for change and work towards community violence prevention solutions.
