Enhancing the health of disadvantaged urban youth through a program of fencing, tutoring and mentoring

This grant supports a unique fencing project for inner city and economically underserved young people in New York City. The project incorporates fencing with educational tutoring, mentoring, conflict resolution and career development in an effort to reach youth at-risk of making unhealthy behavior choices, including substance abuse.
