5000 Men for 500 Corners

19 May

Violence in Chicago has unfortunately risen again and my favorite Pastor, Corey Brooks, is doing something about it. Today is sign-up day for volunteers to “man” (pun intended) the hot spots in Chicago throughout the summer. Specifically, Brooks is asking men to commit to patrolling and serving as mentors as well as building rapport with young men ages 12-25. The 5000 will be on post on 500 city corners on Friday nights from 6-10pm, June through August. This is a program of Project H.O.O.D.

In a related activity, he will be asking women to sign up to be “Sisters on the Street” to mentor young girls throughout the summer on Saturdays from noon to 4pm.
