The Inner City Athletic Program's mission is to provide free athletic instruction and guidance to underprivileged, fostered, and disabled youth, by stressing the importance of nutrition, exercise, and education with community involvement in prevention of childhood obesity.
"Well I think that the program is great it teaches kids how to play baseball! It also, helps kids be able to set goals in life and be able to do anything they put their mind to! A lot of people don't like baseball but they do now because of the camp!
The vision of the Inner City Athletic Program is to bring youth ages 7 to 14, who live in low-income communities, the awareness of health education, ways to decrease obesity, the importance of exercise, good nutritional choices, self-esteem, self-confidence, and the ability to adjust to their environment. The vision is to instill healthy minds, bodies, and spirit to become leaders in their communities.
