Help make the YMCA free/reduced for inner city youth !
This petition had 85 supporters
The YMCA is a safe haven for a lot of kids. Its a place that they can get away and have fun. The city of Milwaukee has been struggling with crime and violence a lot in the past few years and the numbers are increasing at a exponential rate and to make matters worst the ages are ranging from 14-20. As a Milwaukee native I feel obliged to help.
Why do kids go to the YMCA:
- Play sports
- learn new skills
- work out
- join clubs
- hang out with friends
- get away from home
There are many other reasons but I feel these are a few that influence kids the most. If we could find a way to make the YMCA free or reduced for inner city kids that cant afford it would not only help the community but also help build better future for these kids. The crime in Milwaukee is unacceptable and we cant continue to live our lives and act like these problems aren't occurring.
If we make the YMCA free or reduced what can that do to help ?
- Help stop crime in the community
- provide somewhere safe for children to go
- Help parents who work full time and dont have much time to spend with their kids
- Help build better women and men
There are many other reasons but these are things that can help mold the city one child at a time. The YMCA is a place kids go to feel safe and free. If we could find a way to reach the YMCA HQ and actually sit down and create a plan it could help everyone in a monumental way.
Please consider this petition and if you feel that this can help please consider signing this petition. This is our city and we cant continue to let these problems ruin our city. Thank you !
