Hoops for Youth

2008 Hoops for Hope Hill Day

An integral part of this year's program was inception of "Hill Day" which educated kids about the legislative process and the vital role of the First Amendment. Kate Leonard of The Leonard Group, LLP organized the day, which included meeting several Members of Congress and their staff. Congressional speakers and members of the community spoke about the valuable role the kids can play in the democratic process. The students then worked on "issue papers" which they took to "lobby" their congressmen.
