Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
(1) Affording adequate contact hours with the youth, to effect real transformation. We will address this risk by establishing partnerships that can enable the project to continue as a weekend/after-school program. (2) Most of the youth we work with are from urban and 'inner-city' communities. Violence can erupt at any time and negatively affect project activities.
