ANNUAL 5K WALKATHON
Each year we walk in memory of an awesome young man named Zion Patrong who passed suddenly at the tender age of 14. Our aim to raise funds to support our programs and bring awareness to changes we'd like to see in our community.
We believe the solution to reducing youth and gun violence is not contingent on more policing but rather more accessible youth programming/resources, more unity in our communities and more police training.
PowerFilled Youth's programs and initiatives are designed to engage, empower, educate, inspire and uplift BIPOC children and Youth.
Here's how you can help us raise funds to support our 2021-2022 youth programs and outreach initiatives.

The PFYTO team meets weekly examining various character development traits - their meaning, importance and relevance in today's society. Through debate, discussion, leadership activities, skills workshops and dramatic arts we examine and explore these traits as they relate to our lives and community.
Community involvement and outreach are also core aspects of our PowerFilled Youth TO. The PFYTO team continues to show their commitment to creating positive community engagement opportunities.
Our "PILOT" Talks series allow leaders within our community to engage meaningfully with the team, sharing wisdom, knowledge and life experiences.
