Capital City Youth Foundation has made an immediate impact on the community and the youth it serves. In just its second year of full operation CCYF has provided disadvantaged young people with a safe place to learn, workout, and experience the love of Jesus Christ. The services provided such as free basketball training, clinics and tournaments have kept kids off the streets of inner city Richmond. The tutoring and educational outreach has improved the grades and academic standing of our program participants. CCYF through its basketball program Prep United has grown from 30 kids to over 175 kids served in just two years.
CCYF has done all of this while being underfunded and under staffed. The CCYF staff and its board of directors have charted a path in the community. That path includes impacting and saving as many young lives as it can in the Richmond Virginia area. We know that the services we provide are changing lives. Kids who had not thought about college are talking about college, visiting colleges, and receiving opportunities for scholarships to continue their education.
CCYF goals are simple, give young people hope through Jesus Christ, educate young people towards academic success and college degrees, and make all of our kids productive citizens who give back to their community. We cannot realize these lofty goals without the support of the Richmond business community and individuals who both volunteer their time and resources. CCYF has grown so fast we are now in need of monetary support, a larger gym, classrooms, and office space to run our operations. Your assistance will help us to continue the growth and become a permanent part of the lives of Richmond’s children.
