Their project addresses a critical social issue in their community - the participation of youths in illegal drag racing where many often end up injured or killed. Their initiative provides a platform for youths to spend time productively through participation in singing, dancing and the performing arts with a series of concerts where they perform for their peers and members of the community. The project drew support not only from members of their community but the police department as well.
