Community Involvement

Community Development & Programming Committee

The Community Development & Programming Committee was formed to create programming that aligns with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission’s community development initiative.  The committee uses the events put on by the Sports Commission to facilitate learning and life skill development in the local community.  A youth development approach is used to create opportunities for youth to connect with others, develop skills and use those skills to contribute to their community.
