Using sports to escape the streets
Thanks to InsideEd reader Bill for bringing to my attention the video below about the Tender Bridge, a non-profit that provides vulnerable Baltimore students with sports activities and weekend excursions. The video, called "A Fighting Chance," won first place in Loyola College's 2008 film festival. It highlights not only the work of what seems to be a valuable program, but also the incredibly difficult lives its participants lead. "Hope I make it, if I don't die early," says one boy, describing his goal of going to college.
