Mission Statement

Youth Ministry Entertainment is a Community Outreach Organization that specializes in empowering youth & young adults by equipping them with life skills and the necessary resources that will allow them to achieve their dreams & goals in life. We believe in "Training Up Our Youth" by means of "Educational Entertainment." Simply put, we are in the business of Igniting Dreams and Building Outstanding Leaders!!!

Description

For 4 years now, we have been effectively impacting the youth and the community in the Richmond area with a very low budget. The youth visit the elderly, serve at food pantries, and participate in litter pick up through our Community Service Program. We also host a Free "Stop The Violence" Empowerment Concert & Skate Party for Teens four times per year, along with an interactive After School & Summer Program Mon-Fri all year round.

Community Service Program:

We have the youth visiting the elderly, serving at the food pantry, and participating in litter pick-up through our Community Service Program. These activities teach them appreciation & responsibility and instills leadership & strong work ethics.

Stop The Violence Program:

We have a Stop The Violence Program called Swaggavation. Swaggavation is a combination of two words. Swagg means style & confidence. Motivation means to inspire or influence someone to act. When you combine the two, you get "Swaggavation!"It means "Motivating Others To Have A Positive SWAGG!"

We host these Free Stop The Violence Empowerment Concerts & Skate Parties for Teens 4 times per year. We address bullying, sexting, negative peer-pressure, gang violence, anger management, suicide, dating violence, and things of that nature. The whole purpose of Swaggavation is to reduce crime & violence and unite teens. We focus on teaching strategies on how to handle problems without resorting to violence. This powerful movement will effect youth & young adults worldwide as a positive epidemic! Just imagine millions of young people walking around the world with a positive swag wearing Swaggavation T-Shirts, Back-Packs, and Wrist Bands! Powerful Isn’t It?? Become a part of the movement. www.swaggavation.com.

Also, we have a Swaggavation internet radio show every Thursday night from 7:30-8:30pm on www.repnvairadio.com. We discuss issues that young people deal with while promoting positive artist and positive hip-hop music. We have over 30,000 listeners and we welcome new sponsorships. Make Sure You Tune In!
