All kids that grow up in bad neighborhoods usually grow up around gangs and drugs. This program would be designed to help get kids off the streets and give them something to do in their free time. Now as this program is for children in need we will provide transportation, as needed, to and from the rehearsal area. We would also provide lunches/dinners for all the kids in the program. The reason why we would provide lunches and dinners is that a lot of kids in need only ever get nutritious meals at school and nowhere else.

We would also ask the parents to help their kids stay committed. Our final solution if this became an issue is to have $50 fee for entry into the program. This sounds absurd due to it being a program for kids in need, but it will not be required for entry. It would be a fee that the kids would need to work off. Other words we would waive off a certain amount of money of that fee after the kid would help with a fundraiser. Another way we would have them waive it off is to go around the area we would be using and
