THE STORY:

RUNNING REBELS COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION INC wrote -

Keeping Milwaukee teenagers safe, just got harder. In November of 2014 Running Rebels Community Organization learned that critical funding they have received since 1998 is no longer available for their after school program. This video talks about the devastating impact of this sudden funding shortfall and what we can do about it.

Year after year, Running Rebels has struggled to adequately meet the financial needs of their after school program, and this year will be especially hard given the sudden loss of what has been their most steady and generous funder of after school programing, Safe & Sound.  While Running Rebels is thankful for the 16 years of Safe & Sound support and wishes them well moving forward with a redirected focus on community organizing, the reality is that this shift means that Running Rebels needs to step up their efforts to raise the funds required to keep youth safe and engaged after school.  

Running Rebels believes it is not enough to simply provide a supervised recreational area and tutoring for their after school program… the key to transforming youth is tapping into their passions, whether it’s a love for basketball, or poetry, or rap or their desire to make money and use these interests as a way to engage them in effective one-on-one mentoring, case management and lifelong support. Which is why Running Rebels program supervisors are trained in the evidence based JCIP (Juvenile Cognitive Intervention Program), a cognitive-behavioral based program that guides youth through a process of examining their beliefs that are driving their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; leading to either desired or undesired consequences in their lives.  The goal of JCIP is to teach the youth skills that will assist them in identifying, controlling and changing their personal thinking patterns and underlying beliefs that are unproductive and/or destructive. In addition, supervisors are trained in Restorative Justice Practices, Community Building, Trauma-Informed Care, CPR & First Aid and Fulfill the Dream, a culturally relevant character development program. Running Rebels is aligned with the Center for Youth Engagement's Beyond the Bell Initiative and Community Building Milwaukee.

To meet the total recreation and mentoring needs for Running Rebels' after school programming will require $95,500.

1 full-time program coordinator: $40,000
