During the Beautification project, Project Fighting Chance had volunteers to help spruce up their new building with cleaning, painting and yard work.

Project Fighting Chance’s goal is to help those who have been in trouble or just have gone down the wrong path.

Co-founder and CEO of Project Fighting Chance reinforces their motto, “Project Fighting Chance, Giving our youth a fighting chance,” to let everyone know that this program is for the community.

Some programs they strongly support are in prevention and intervention. Prevention would include athletics, while intervention would help those who have been in trouble with parole, drugs, alcohol and more.

“[Prevention is to] get the youth in something before they get in the streets,” said Franklin.

The program is looking for volunteers to be apart of something so positive for the community. They will be trying to work with several organization, specifically Cal State San Bernardino, for tutoring volunteers.

“We need any type of mentors or big brothers, because I’m dealing with a lot of kids from single parent homes,” adds Franklin.
