Explorers Use Basketball As Recruitment Tool
“The purpose of the clinic was to be a recruiting net for the Youth Explorers,” Echols said “Then while they have everyone’s attention they could promote their mission.”
Leading the clinic was founder and president of Leading Youth 2 Empowerment’s William McFarland. With him were Kavon Lytch and Shiron Brown. McFarland and Lytch play pro-ball overseas.
The NYPD Explorer Program is a community service, career-oriented program designed to educate young men and women, ages 14-20, about law enforcement.
