'Roc The Youth Tour'Kicks Off At Arverne Library
The November 19 event, spearheaded by the NAACP and RDRC Youth Councils, is a way to give the young people of Rockaway positive influences in what they do with their time.
"The goals are two-fold," said Donovan Richards, the co-chair of the NAACPYouth Council. "It's to give you [the youth] a chance to express yourselves and to show the talent here in Rockaway.
"We want everyone to stop the violence. This is just the beginning. We have a long way to go."
The 'Roc The Youth Tour' will be making stops at community centers, libraries and churches across the Peninsula before it ends with a big show at the Goldie Maple Academy on Beach 56 Street.
