ICAP provides nutritional presentations, giveaways, partners with Constructing Hope at Fulton K-8, and host Spectacular Saturdays at MLK Rec.
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.
ICAP partners with the US Attorney's Office with theSuccess Agents, a literacy program at Porter & Johnson Elementary Schools once a month providing a physical activity aspect to the program.
ICAP conducted a free Baseball Clinic at Chollas Lake Little League in September for boys & girls ages 4-15. We gave away T-Shirts & batting gloves, and served lunch to all participants and their families. We had free raffles for bicycles and prizes.
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.
