We see the problem

Portsmouth and surrounding cities have experienced an uptick in community violence, and our under-served communities are plagued by: gang activity, drug abuse, dropout rates, rising rates of recidivism and mental health. These factors adversely affect youth and young adults of Hampton Roads and contribute to the vicious cycle of violence.

Our Objective

Give Back 2 Da Block has put together a series of events and showcases to help combat violence. Giving young people a positive outlet and an opportunity for creative expression is one way we are helping to bring awareness and address youth violence and gang activity in our communities. Our goal is to instill confidence, community awareness, and provide positive outlets, affording youth and young adults the opportunity to turn negative thoughts and behaviors into positive ones.

Why we need you

The success of the Give Back 2 Da Block events and outreach efforts to positively engage youth and young adults and keep them off the street relies on the support and collaboration of both corporate and private sponsors. We would be honored to have your organization join us at the forefront of creating change and opportunities for youth and young adults in Hampton Roads. We look forward to your support in these intentional engagement opportunities in hopes of shifting our community dynamic. There are so many individuals who are constantly overlooked, misunderstood, and are simply not afforded the opportunity to develop their talents and we would like to continue to create platforms that afford these avenues.
