P.L.A.Y. (Police Leadership and Youth)
Project Leaders: Roenesha Anderson and George Johnson
Neighborhood: Southside & South Chattanooga
P.L.A.Y. will bring at-risk youth and city authority figures, such as police and firefighters, together through basketball, sports, and other athletic, team-building activities. This team's goal is to create a two-way street for understanding--that the youth might learn not to be afraid of authority figures who are here to help, and that the police and firefighters might get to know and better understand the youth in their communities--by coming together on a level playing field through sports.
