Milford Youth Upgrading Fitness Program at Youth Center

Congratulations to the members of the Youth Council at the Milford Youth Center, who are also members of the newly launched United Way of Tri-County Youth Venture Team, called Milford Youth Challenge Crue. The Council members plan to start a fitness program at the center to provide the youth members with fun and innovative ways to be active.

With only limited equipment available currently at the center, members get bored with the same activities being played. "We plan on purchasing new equipment such as volleyballs, baseballs, Wii Fit, Dance Dance Revolution, and much more", said Torie Glennon, one of the venture team leaders "we hope that fitness program will excite more youth at the center to be active and also will encourage other Milford youth to join the center."



The team formally presented their idea before a Selection Panel of community members. The panelist included Amy Leone representing Milford JAG, Amy Tamagni representing Milford Youth Commission, and Jim Sanchioni Director of the Youth Center. After reviewing the project, the panelists unanimously decided to award the Team a $1,000 United Way Youth Venture grant. "It is great to know that youth have these ideas about how to make community better" said Amy Leone.

Milford Youth Challenge Crue plans on using the funding to purchase materials for their fitness program including basketballs, baseballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, a volleyball net, Wii Fitness games, Dance Dance Revolution console, and other materials. They are also going to ask community members for their support in fundraisers and donations so that they can keep the program running after they spend the start up grant. Milford Youth Challenge Crue is the seventh team to be launched out of the United Way of Tri-County Youth Venture Partnership.

Criteria to start a United Way Venture Team includes: must be a new club, service, or organization; provide a positive, lasting community benefit; be created, run, and managed by youth ages 12-20; have clear goals, a committed team, a realistic budget; and, have a non-controlling adult mentor. Each Team receives up to $1,000 in Venture seed funding.
