The Revere Police Activities League in conjunction with the Revere Police Department has been awarded a Foundation Trust Grant to promote well-being and healthy development for high risk, at risk, and disadvantaged children, youth and communities.
This funding will supplement the Revere Police Summer Youth Academy with eight additional days of programming. This programming will focus on building positive relationships with police personnel, educate youth on the dangers of substance abuse, address social/emotional health, build self esteem and self confidence while offering a continuum of services throughout the summer months.
Summertime activities and trips included; kayaking on the Ipswich River, Ropes Course at Project Adventure, North Shore Navigators vs: Brockton Rox Baseball game, Tour of Fenway Park, New England Aquarium and IMax Theatre, classroom presentations, discussions, and community service work throughout the city.
Dr. Joseph Spinazzola, Executive Director of the Foundation Trust, comments, “We are honored to support CAPIC’s important partnership with the Revere Police Department by expanding the Revere Police Activities League’s programming for their Summer Youth Academy.” To learn more about the work of the Foundation Trust, visit https://foundationtrust.org.
